LA ARMADA- "Anti-Colonial Vol.1" LP (Clear)
“Anti-Colonial Vol. 1” The latest album by La Armada, sees the band honing in on their musical identity and finally capturing the energy of their live shows on record. After years of absorbing elements from the multi-genre bills they played both in the underground scene as well as in the major touring circuit, the objective was clear but not easy; to utilize the elements of hardcore that first drew them to the genre while adding the Caribbean rhythms that make them unique.
The result is 11 tracks of a tasteful crossover between the hardcore punk they grew up with and the lively grooves commonly heard in Latin percussion, something seldom explored successfully in heavy music. The songs range from fast and heavy to crushing downtempo beats, toppled with witty lyrics that touch on the socio-economic barriers that stagger the working class of today. CREEP RECS. Limited to 250 on Ultra-Clear vinyl!
