Costa Rica’s noise punk girl group, Las Robertas, just released their debut album, Cry Out Loud, on the Producción Automata label. For those of you who like your music to have lyrics you can understand, don’t worry—Las Robertas’ songs are completely in English. The group has drawn many comparisons to Vivian Girls due to their shared noisy aesthetic and hazy female vocals. For a taste of their sound, listen to their single, “Street Feelings.” And if you like what you hear, you can download three full tracks on the band’s website.
