No Babies - Yo No Soy Como Tu
I’ve been meaning to check out more No Babies stuff forever. I’m glad I did, as this is fucking awesome spastic no wave / noise rock goodness. There are only 5 tracks on this EP and they’re all pretty short but that just means you’ll keep playing it over and over.
The sound here is fast jagged no wave with up front free jazz style saxophone squeals, angular guitars blasting drums and powerful shouted / screamed vocals. The songs are extremely tight in execution, veering between free jazz bursts and angular stop start precision. There is also a palpable hardcore influence to me as well, especially in the vocals and lyrics (good feminist / anti-capitalist jams).
This is a really good EP and if you enjoy intense no wave / noise rock then I suggest you check it out.
No Babies! Jasmine and Asa! Friends doing REALLY good music.
I mean, I have a lot of friends in good bands. But this EP’s really hooked me of late.
