Filed under beautiful genius: Mas Y Mas MP3s
Mas Y Mas knocked up pop and coked up rock; they hotboxed funk and outfoxed punk. They shot the sheriff, the deputy and Mr. Burns, and somehow still found the time to throw a house party where the girls are down to their bras by eleven. Yep, they’re pretty much goofy lunatics, firing out music that’s raucous, ecstatic and one high-pitched yelp away from ridonculous. In other words, get ready to flush your Adderall and hook up the pony keg. The Unicorns-times-two have just arrived and they’re not leaving till the whole block is rocked, stoned and totally TPed.
Or hold on a second actually. I just listened to their great EP, Latin Outreach, again and I’m thinking maybe I went too far there. On further review, only three out of five songs really fit under the headings of “schizophrenic,” “manic” and “riotous.” The last two, “Jenny Says” and “Ruby Ain’t Teen,” hint at something like maturity, with prettier if still noisy melodies and a single mood that’s sustained throughout. They still rock reliably and rowdily of course; they still sound just as fresh and fun as their balls-to-the-wall brothers. But somebody has to be the responsible one around here, to suggest maybe cutting back the party to six nights a week. Okay, okay, six-and-a-half nights tops.
Pick up Latin Outreach for an extremely fair $3 from Shut Up! I Love You Records here.
