a clattering, intense and raucous record – this lot use stooges-y squealing sax, all the force of your favourite sst heavy hitters and pure fury to create a ferocious sound twinned with incisive and political lyrics from frontwoman Victoria ruiz.

throughout ‘cost of living’ they unflinchingly confront everything from immigration to their standing as queer, latino punks while still keeping an insatiably infectious edge that should appeal to fans of everyone from idles to wire to lower slaughter. everything from concept to tone to delivery is impeccable here – one of the strongest punk releases of 2017 in our books. “a celebration of life in all its diversity that couldn't be more urgent, vibrant or vital.” - npr
