Las Robertas - Cry Out Loud

Now these are some vajays I can get into. Figuratively speaking, of course. All-girl 4-piece. Costa Rican noise-pop with a grittier early 90s Swirlies-ish shoegaze vibe. Hefty drums, vocal hooks, and the expected wall of sound. I've seen them referred to as the "heavier Best Coast", which isn't far off, and I'm assuming it isn't too long until they're all over Pitchfork. Hey I made it through the entire post without the Vivian Girls reference...

Loving this. Thanks for posting it. I agree with you about High Low, by the way.
