NUBLES, LAS / PALOMINO BLOND: Split: 12” EP

Las Nubes: catchy, grungy pop—slower tempos, mellow vocals, and loud guitars. Palomino Blond: loud pop, a bit more aggressive in delivery and with some dissonance mixed in for “edge.” Both bands are quite good at what they’re doin’ and deliver two tracks each with conviction. –Jimmy Alvarado (BUFU, bufu-records.com)
