Retretes- Aguantando Como Pueda 7”. It seems like Mexico has an incredibly fertile punk scene these days and I'm glad to see that more of it is being documented. RETRETES are another killer Mexican band geting their vinyl debut courtesy of World Gone Mad Records. They play dirty and trashy garage punk burstin with just the right amount of catchy, snotty melodies with tons of grit to back it up. RETRETES play self-styled punk rock that is a great musical addition to a city with a long standing history of great bands. With totally different production I could see them being a fairly straightforward garage punk band. There are elements that remind me of neo-garage-punk and some older/KBD punk as well, particularly the Kids, who I dare say must be a direct influence. But on this recording they don't sound anything like the typical US or European Garage band. They have the trebly, trashy production, and even though the style of music is completely different the music is just as gritty, interesting, urgent and fun. A very unique 7” and highly recommended whether you're a garage punk fan or deep into the worldwide DIY hardcore scene. Reatards, Sick Thoughts, Spits fans check these guys out.
