In love with: Las Robertas
These girls seem to be getting written up all over the internet right now, but I'm finding myself too in love with their debut Cry Out Loud to not also give a shout about them here. Las Robertas hail from Costa Rica and make some of the best fuzzed-out pop these ears have heard in a while. There are a lot of bands out and about right now just chomping at the bit for this type of sound, but so few really have the melodic chops for it. You can't just get by being cute and plugging into a fuzz pedal—at least not for me. Each and every song on Cry Out Loud is melodically memorable, and instantly so! This can be a hard trick to pull of in a genre that is, frankly, massively over-saturated at the moment. That's why Las Robertas get such two huge thumbs up from me. For example, notice how quickly this song gets into your head.
