BIZNAGA: Sentido del Espectáculo: CD

May 31, 2017

I’m gonna call this ‘78 punk. It’s more muscular than breakneck, with confident melodies, punchy dynamics, and some encroaching post-punk darkness. Think Give ‘em Enough Rope instead of the self-titled Clash album. Biznaga really sells this sound with well-written songs, and an energy that makes the whole deal feel fresh. They are from Madrid, Spain, and their lyrics are in Spanish. Stick “Mediocridad y Confort” on a playlist between The Adverts and Something Fierce. –Chris Terry (
