Sin Motivo: Guerra De Flores 7"

Narcotic Influence

$6.00

Our friends in Narcotic Influence are proud to announce the release of the Guerra De Flores 7\" by Denton, TX's Sin Motivo, who share members with Wiccans. They played a barely-attended NYC show on a bad night and blew me away with how good they were. Their recordings capture that energy perfectly and this is some of the most driving and propulsive hardcore punk I've heard in ages. You need to hear this. They have a bunch more stuff coming out soon. Limited to 300 copies.

Our take: Debut 7" from this punk band out of Denton, Texas. Sin Motivo share members with Wiccans, and Sin Motivo are definitely in the looser and nastier vein of Wiccans rather than, say, the more polished hardcore punk sound of Austin bands like Impalers or Vaaska. There are four songs here... the three on the a-side are bruising, noisy hardcore numbers that aren't dissimilar to bands like Ajax, i.e. bands that have some elements of tough, straightforward hardcore to their sound but also sound very punk. For my money, though, the shining moment of this EP is the title track, which takes up the entire b-side of the record and takes the listener on an epic journey comprising blastbeats, skronky saxophone solos, noise rock dirges, and of course some bruising and nasty hardcore. It's a wild mix, but I love bands that both know how to rage and aren't afraid to put themselves out there and be a little artsy, and Sin Motivo definitely fit that bill. Limited to only 300 copies.
