Merda is perhaps best known as the brother-band of the legendary Mukeka di Rato, but they certainly don’t live in that shadow after ten years of worldwide touring and plenty of releases. Their newest LP finds them further perfecting their own mix of sloppy fast hardcore, snotty pop-punk, and the occasional samba part. It almost sounds like if Razors Edge did a ton of drugs and was more of a mustaches-and-FYP kinda crew. Perfect for sunny afternoons and skateboarding.

This record was a grower. At first I was a bit taken aback by how different it is from the earlier material that I'm more familiar with. Everything is more controlled, more pop, not the out-of-control super-sloppy thrash attack. But as I sat with the I think this is one of my strongest releases. The music, the feeling, the mood, the energy, the vibe, that indescribable's really infectious. It's FUN. It puts me in a better mood. It's a feeling I associate with the Merda guys, who are a ton of fun as people. I can't think of any other band in the world that can create quite this same feeling.
