Ausencia – self-titled 7″
Latin-American protest/backstreet punk from LA, California. Anthemic, fist-waving choruses with a punchy, rough-edged charm and a gruff-vocal sincerity. Wearing their hearts on their sleeve in this instance of this record sleeve, the targeting of fascist police). The sound of angry, unplifting defiance with the added bonus of well-crafted, ear-catching melodic hooks.
