Leptospirose "Mula-Poney" CDPosted on Thursday, February 26th, 2009 @ 7:15am » permalink
I don't know much about Leptospirose, so most all I can say is that they formed in 2001 and are from São Paulo, Brazil. "Mula-Poney" is their latest release, split between Läjä Räkords, Caveira da Força Discos, and possibly another label or two. I think they've had a couple of other records prior to this, but again, I'm not entirely sure. What I can say is that this disc blazes through a whopping 18 tracks in less than 20 minutes, and this is some seriously raging hardcore/punk fuckin' rock. Expect loads of tunes that don't even hit the one-minute mark and a serious fusion of simplistic styles that effortlessly bridges the gap between fast, blasting, three-chord hardcore/punk and an undeniable rock 'n' roll edge. Pretty much all the song titles and everything I can find about this band is in Portuguese, and the translations I ran didn't really work out right, so I have no idea what they're saying, but the explosive energy and overall sense of fun that I'm picking up here give me the impression that these cats don't take themselves too seriously and have a good sense of humor. Either way, the material rips and the songs are jam packed with attitude, not to mention absolutely hammering bass runs that totally kick ass. I'm all for it, and I sincerely hope some of you enjoy these jams as much as I do.
Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea how you can get your hands on this CD outside of Brazil, nor can I really provide accurate information on how to order a copy straight from the band or one of the labels. I'd recommend contacting them all on MySpace using the links above and taking it from there. I know that Läjä Räkords has some distribution in the US and Europe, so maybe they'll be able to let you know when and where the disc might be available from more sources!
