BRICHEROS: Making Our Way to the USA: LP

Hot and ready Ramones-core that leans into the band’s Peruvian roots. Will it blow your mind? No. Will it deliver some competent Lookout! Records style pop punk that, at its best, sounds like a lost Lillingtons record? Absolutely. Bricheros know what they’re good at and deliver with confidence in a genre that seems smaller every day. It’s familiar, it’s comfortable, it’s “for fans of the genre,” and I say that as the biggest fan of the genre possible. –Gwen Static (Self-released, bricheros.bandcamp.com)
