Round 5: Season 2: Continental Rec Tournament

How the mighty sloth has fallen. Let’s go to fuckin’ South America.

Gimme some jazz or psych or pop or grunge or whatever the fuck you can find that you’ll think I’ll like...
El exceso y/o abuso de drogas y alcohol...


Argentina 🇦🇷

Fun, amateurish, catchy, and rambunctious this record is right up my alley. The songs are fast but not like breakneck speed just typical punk tempo that I’m a huge sucker for. The music could be a little more experimental or new but it sticks to the punk rules and plays them very well. Although the acoustic guitar in a few tracks feels fresh for some reason. None of the songs overstay their welcome with most of them being around the 2-3 minute mark so you are never really having to slog through anything. The few solos here feel purposeful and effective since there are so few. This record has personality and manages to stick out somehow despite not exactly doing a whole lot of new in the genre. This is a great record diva and one that would have done very well in almost any round but the competition is too much man. Better luck next year?

Where divas rec was more raucous and loud this is the total opposite. Introspective and druggy with a little bit of groove to it. I love the percussion a lot mostly because of it’s relative kitlessness and minimalist style. You don’t get too many huge fills but just simple rhythms that complement the beautiful melodies.You are just getting tambourines and shakers and hand drums and shit. The song Yellow Sea Days is a dang masterpiece if you ask me. It’s got a dope groove in the centerpiece that is just perfect. A good album to just sit back and get stoned too. There’s a few left turns in the song structures that adds a lot to it’s psychedelic feel. I kept coming back to this one the most. Stylistically not exactly something I’d go for if someone explained it to me but I’m glad you recced it.

Brazil 🇧🇷

Lying somewhere between post and just regular punk (that’s what I think at least) this record is basically perfect. It’s got the energy of punk but the musical intellect of a post punk band. It’s dark and driving which in my opinion is hard to do. This record is full of imperfections... the drum fills are off time, the singer sings out of key, the solos sound out of tune at times. Really the only one to hold it down is the bass player. All of this makes this record perfect in my eyes. I especially love this drummer. He sounds unhinged and about to burst through the gates. It sounds like he hasn’t been playing very long and is therefore full of vigor and passion. Each mistake he makes just makes him better. The guitarist can somehow play bright tones without sounding shiny. Sounds both effortless and like a lot of work was required to make. Love this record.
