There is no room for doubt that there is going to be a before and an after 'Xeristar' in LINDA GUILALA’s career. Maybe it’s the time they’ve taken since their last EP, during which they’ve been producing groups like AXOLOTES MEXICANOS, WHEN NALDA BECAME PUNK and LOS BONSÁIS.
We are looking at their best collection of songs - 6 intense, electrifying compositions that go from furious to narcotic, somewhere between LOS PLANETAS, RIDE, CLINIC, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and SPIRITUALIZED at their spaciest and most ultrasonic.
'Medication' is reference to an antidepressant medication, 'Chicas Guapas (Que Van A Trabajar En Moto)' is a pure crack of a whip with a super-catchy chorus, the ferocity of a well-armed A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS, and programming that gives even more consistency to the wall of noise held up by an irresistibly pop melody.
If the Reid brothers had begun with 21st century music, they would have ended up with songs like 'No Me Veis'. The guitars full of conviction, rock spirit with pop ancestry, and a lot of noise. 'Sábados De Tormenta' also has some great indiepop and pop-punk echoes, between LUSH, THE PRIMITIVES, and SHOP ASSISTANTS.
