LA GRITONA release and webstore shirt!


La Gritona's discography 2xCD (for those of you who like long titles, its official moniker is Demasiado Tonto Para Los Niños Listos. Demasiado Listo Para Los Niños Tontos) hit the shelves yesterday, and in honor of the event, and because of all the questions, we have launched a very limited La Gritona t-shirt. These shirts were hand screened by Colin, the lovely lead man of La Gritona, and feature his original artwork. They are pretty badass, check it:


As previously stated, these shirts are super limited, so head over to our webstore here to grab one. And pick up a copy of the 2xCD discography cause it is equally kick-ass. Alarm Press placed it on the best albums of the week list and had these gracious worlds to say:
Headquartered in mid-1990s Boston, La Gritona took a definite influence from the Amphetamine Reptile roster, drawing upon elements of Helmet, Unsane, and The Jesus Lizard while channeling the vocal intensity of Henry Rollins.

The material is a dissonant, debauched mix of down-tuned guitars, distorted bass, mid-tempo beats, atonal vocals, and noise. A song such as "+2 Charisma" (bonus points for D&D reference) aptly summarizes the band's raw energy and repetitive power in just 63 seconds, and the collection's live tracks capture La Gritona's on-stage muscle.
