Enrique from the Massachusetts band Los Bungalitos gets down to talk about their new album Nueva Inglaterra. We talk about the journey this wicked collection of musicians goes through when they make this blistering music, and Enrique shows us we can be positive and uplifting even while we are conscious and critical, something we all too often lose sight up when we are constantly buried under the bullshit. And of course we also manage to talk a ton of shit too, mostly about wiffle ball and the obvious intersection of politics and professional wrestling.

PLUS we listen to tunes from Los Bungalitos, Hivesmasher, and Intifada, Luis Diaz & Yallzee.

Mani Mostofi from the band Racetraitor gets down to talk about current political in the US, the continuing rise of the far right, and political violence, the latter of which is sorely needed at this moment. In the wake of the horrible murders committed by a rightwing shooter in Pittsburgh as well as these whacked mail bombing attempts by a mega Trump supporter, the mainstream media and government officials have made a massive effort to cast all political violence in the same light, lumping together these backward nut jobs or crazy ass proud boys with the righteous struggle of antifascists here in the US. We sort all this out in a way the mainstream media is fully unwilling or unable to do, and Mani breaks it all down with incredible clarity.

THEN we talk about Racetraitor’s new album “2042”, listen to a few tracks from their album and also listen to a few songs from Redbait and La Armada.
