"DFMK" (Snakes & Stones Music; 2020)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
There's so much I love about punk rock. I love the energy. I love the rawness. I love the purity. It feels like what music should be; straight from the musician's heart with no filters, no corporate interference, no bullshit.
DFMK's self-titled release is all of those things. Fifteen tracks of fast, raucous guitars, a pounding bassline and rollicking drums that keep things flowing. They even throw in a gritty lead here and there. The longest song runs two minutes and forty-five seconds, the shortest runs forty-three seconds. Perfect punk rock lengths. If I had to describe their sound I'd say it's a cross between The Ramones and The Clash and that's a hell of a pedigree.
Of course, because the band is from Tijuana, Mexico, all of the songs here are sung entirely in Spanish. For all I know, they're singing, "Rough Edge sucks! Don't visit their page!" But I hope not. Because I like this recording a lot whether I can understand it or not.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
