The Argentine trio has a reputation for darkness, and a glance at their album art or song titles and lyrics certainly suggests an affinity for gloom. But one listen to Fiesta Muda reveals that this is actually a fun record. Most of the music here is upbeat, and even in the presence of dissonance and saturation. Fiesta Muda is a strong comeback from Mujercitas Terror, one that cements their image as a dark rock band also capable of beauty. |
