BIZNAGA: Gran Pantalla: LP

The rousing chants of soccer fans thoroughly blended with driving and ethereal post-punk-influenced garage rock. That’s a fucked up sentence but hopefully it conveys the essential message that: this band is fuckin’ great! This new record shows an emphasis on adding relatively expansive texture to songs compared to the ripping, guitar punk ambush of their previous one, but it’s still fantastic. Bands are allowed to grow; bands should be encouraged to grow! On Gran Pantalla, Biznaga prove that their voice is relevant and focused. It doesn’t matter if you spend your days and nights immersed in the sounds of garage punk, post-punk, or whatever Masshysteri would be considered, you’ll find something you enjoy in this band. –Daryl (Slovenly)
