FLORES ROBADAS / CRIMES OF FASHION: Split: CS

Flores Robadas are from Miami. All three of their songs move at a mid-tempo rock pace with some nice Gits-esque turns and posi intervals in their chord structure. The vocals are solid in a similar spectrum. The recording is also very strong for a demo. I couldn’t find any info about Crimes Of Fashion. They also provide three mid-pacers of well-constructed, nodding-in-agreement punk. Both bands’ songs are thoughtful in construction with a ’90s Florida feel that doesn’t incorporate any lazy emo tropes. It’s not my thing, but I enjoyed it and it’s well done. I’d say if you’re into Discount or The Gits, it’s a quality demo. –Billups Allen (Freetime Boyz)
