Latest cassette from this killer hardcore band from Texas.

Our take: Second tape from this ripping punk band out of Texas. Their first one was good enough to get a vinyl pressing on Symphony of Destruction, but this one is even better. You probably know their vocalist Dru from her other bands Criaturas and Kurraka, but she has a different style in Mujeres Podridas. Usually I think it’s a bad idea for a singer to be in more than one group because vocals are so individual and so central to a band’s sound, but Dru has such flexibility and inventiveness as a singer that she can make all three bands sound distinct from one another. She has this one move she does on the first track where she expels all the air from her lungs at once in a way that’s not quite a yell or a scream… it’s somewhere between a scream and a hiss, and the only vocalist I’ve heard do something similar is Chitose from the Comes. On this tape you get four tracks, two blistering hardcore rippers and two more mid-paced songs. The first mid-paced song, “Misterio Planeta,” leads with the bass and approaches the catchiness of Agent Orange circa Living in Darkness, while the last song, “Golpe Tras Golpe (Desechables)” is more anthemic a la the Avengers or Ultimo Resorte. I’m a huge fan of every band that this group of people starts, but with this release it seems like Mujeres Podridas has found their voice and established themselves as just as important and vital as the members’ other bands.
