Chikita Violenta, Indeed

Just found a cool new band by way of a free song of the day from emusic. They're from Mexico City (worst traffic in the world, but that's another story) and they are heavily influenced by indie rock. The first comparison that comes to mind when I checked out their new release TRE3S and their 2007 release The Stars and Suns Sessions is Broken Social Scene. Who knows, maybe they named it after the track "Stars and Sons" from You Forgot It In People. Anyway, they're called Chikita Violenta and I think they're pretty cool.

Check them out and see what you think.

Here are "Laydown" and "War" from The Stars and Suns Sessions

And here's "Tired" from TRE3S

They even do a cover of "Eight Miles High"
