Every week, new bands surface playing homage to the Ramones, The Queers and their ilk, and about once a month, you’ll probably find one good enough to add to your regular punk playlist. Such is the case with Moratones, a Spanish take on classic pop punk themes. On this EP release, their music is played with such authenticity that, within about a minute, you’ll completely forget that the vocals are all in Spanish and just get swept along with the band’s general love for the style.
Frantzeska is a three piece punk/alternative rock band from Bilbao, Spain. ‘BesauriOn!’ is their second release and although it may be half the length of their prior record, stylistically, they branch out twice as far. In just five numbers and with the help of four friends, they show off a multitude of styles and influences, from pure punk, to ska/reggae, funk, with touches of pop and even lounge jazz.
