Album Review

Reviewed 2017-11-21 
Prettiest Eyes is the sci-fi Puerto Rican-Mexican-via-L.A. space-punk trio—including lead vocalist and drummer Pachy Garcia, bassist Marcos Rodriguez and keyboardist/electronics manipulator/vocalist Paco Casanova. Prettiest Eyes make crazed, paranoid psych, the kind that sounds like climbing the walls (in a good way). The searing atonalism on Pools is equal parts narcotic invocation, and dissociated garage punk. I suppose some will call it art-rock but that would assign to it an intellectual connotation far removed from its beastly physicality.
