We Love Muy Cansado - The Stars + Garters album


Boston's Muy Cansado releases Stars + Garters

HOT NEW PROJECT: My High School Spanish tells me muy cansado means very tired, but there's nothing remotely worn out at all about Boston's Muy Cansado. The threesome have released one hell of a debut album in Stars + Garters (highly recommended) released just last week. The album is rife with great guitars, counter basslines and strong drums. In other words it's just damn good rock!

RSL RECOMMENDED: Record Report Card 4.0 Stars (a 5 Star Scale)

Muy Cansado are David Fine (Drums), Lisa Libera (Bass Guitar and Vocals), and Chris Mulvey (Insane Vocals and Guitar.)

THE BAND: Chris Mulvey's locals on this record are pretty insane - calling to mind vintage Frank Black. His notes elongate into a stage scream while bassist Lisa Libera's harmony softens the blow. All the while, drummer David Fine sharply punctuates the beat. I am soooo glad that this one appeared in my mailbox - seriously one of the better debut albums we have heard for some time! Our 4.0 Score is the second highest ranking we have given a band in '08 for their first full-length LP! (We hear a lot of new music. This is a serious compliment.) Maybe we can get them to play an RSL show sometime? We'll see!

I've also heard rumors from a reliable source that a member of Muy Cansado is related to one of the members of the Pixies.
