MUS105 LA MISMA – Kanizadi LP
After just one 7″ and a handful of demos NYC’s La Misma release their debut LP ‘Kanizadi’ on La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Toxic State in the USA. The title track ‘Kanizadi’ kicks off the LP with a Crisis esque riff before heading deep into a world of fury, energy and UK82 pogo punk. Their sound is built on driving drums, bass that has depth and bounce, harsh yet catchy guitar work and intense vocals that are spat out in Portuguese. It sits somewhere between the fury of Tožibabe and the punkier side of As Mercenárias or Nixe, classic early 80’s Italian singles by Kandeggina Gang or Jo Squillo and a demo found in the Riot City archive. ‘Kanizadi’ is surely another vital piece in the puzzle of NYC punk in 2015.
The LP comes housed in a 350 Gram sleeve with an A2 poster and 28 page booklet designed by La Misma’s vocalist Nay Vieira-Rosario.
