CRUZ RADICAL: Self-titled: LP

I’ve never heard of Cruz Radical but now they are on my radar. Cruz Radical is a San Diego band that dishes up some bilingual punk, in both Spanish and English. It’s a modern take on the Zeros with that straightforward Chula Vista sound and Adolescents-style bass lines, but also in the vein of SoCal contemporaries Generacion Suicida. It’s clean, upbeat, no-frills punk and I’m into it. –Camylle Reynolds (Sex Sheet)
