This is kind of a repeat except it’s on a different label. Last year I was hit over the head with killer record from Las Kellies an all girl band from Argentina who all take the last name Kelly the way the Ramones all adopted the surname Ramone. Kellies was their third album but my introduction to them. The record is now getting a US release on 5 July courtesy of Fire records. Kellies melded angular post punk riffs from the likes of Wire via Elatica with the fat beats of Bronx sisters ESG whose Erase You they cover on the album. It was one of my favorites albums of last year and well worth picking up now that it is getting a domestic release.
Here’s one from ESG. The original of Erase You which Las Kellies cover.
