REVIEW: Los Grillos Collective

Thanks Los Grillos Collective for this WHITE MYSTERY Blood & Venom review. Read the full article here:
Back in the days of my of my youth, which were occasionally spent washing my buddy’s dad’s Chevy Malibu in exchange for 12-packs of Coors Light, that same dad would survey the work while dispensing random nuggets of wisdom such as this (upon learning that his son had his sights set on a redhead): “You know what they say, red on the head, fire in the hole!”
Well, it’s not exactly what my buddy’s dad meant, but the ginger-haired, sister-brother duo, White Mystery, have a fire burning with napalm intensity down in their rock & roll hole on their sophomore lp, Blood & Venom. Sister Alex White is a wild-banshee woman, screaming and shredding her way through party mantras and non-sequitur self-mythologizing as brother Frances White bashes away like Animal on acid. File this one under “tough, raw and relentless”–or maybe “sounds fuckin’ awesome from the tape deck of a Chevy Malibu while shotgunning cans of Coors Light”. At any rate, if you want some garage rock that burns with a punk rock fervor, gets its hooks in you with a power-pop melodic sensibility, and flails with a simultaneous irreverence towards and love for its most obvious antecedents as it makes its own rattled-cage way through the world, you’ll want to file this somewhere in your collection.
Blood & Venom is out now and ready to rock. Check it out here.
