Boomkat Product Review:
Billed as a ‘party band’ and hailing from Puerto Rico I thought I knew what I was in for when I popped ‘Tan Baja’ into the CD player, but I was quite wrong. The blast of lo-fi instrumentation and reminded more of Fonal acts Ville Leoninen or Risto than any party band I’ve heard before. Sure there are elements of 60s rock ‘n roll and surf music, but everything is recreated under a blanket of tape noise and lo-budget effects. This of course makes everything far more interesting to those of us who go to parties once every couple of years whether we’re invited or not, and ‘Tan Baja’ is a blistering listening experience. You don’t even need to know what they’re on about, like Fonal sometimes it’s better to just let the words fly over your head, you probably wouldn’t want to know what they were saying anyway right?
