— LAS ROSAS
Las Rosas formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2013 with guitarist Jose Boyer, bassist Jose Aybar, and drummer Christopher Lauderdale. Boyer had previously found success as a member of Matador Records act Harlem while also playing in Daytona with Lauderdale. Aybar, meanwhile, was recruited after being seen playing with Brooklyn cult rock band Wild Yaks. Their Burger Records-issued debut EP, “Flower in the Sun” arrived late that year, followed in 2014 by “Ms. America”. Rising from their lo-fi origins, the band released their debut full-length “Everyone Gets Exactly What They Want” in 2017, showcasing a natural flair for hooks and harmonies.
«Baby Jesus, like their label mates, have a wildly original sound, however Baby Jesus are distinctly more psychedelic than Levitation’s previous offerings, and that’s saying something! The reverb is literally palpable on these recordings, dripping and spilling from the listener’s speakers in contorted, spasmodic fits.
This is gnarly garage psych in its truest form right here, folks. No bullshit, no fucking around. The shrieking organ rhythms, the twisted jangling hideousness of the guitar, the tympanic explosion of drums and the screeched Iggy Pop vocals team to create some of the best noise I’ve heard in a long while.»
