OJO POR OJO: Paroxismo: Flexi 7”

Jul 20, 2021

I’m not usually a fan of the flexi (unless it’s Ripcord or Heresy), but this one is a straight ripper and the flexi is thick enough to make it worthy. After their blazing LP on La Vida Es Un Mus, these Mexico City kids come back swinging. Steve Albini of Big Black fame recorded it, which seems weird, but he harnessed their raw brutality. Sounding a lot like the recent crop of Spanish bands (Irreal, Barcelona, Otan, et cetera) they rip through two super raw, desperate Spanish ragers. Well worth your pesos, this kills it. –Tim Brooks (Exabrupto, ojoporojo.bandcamp.com)
