All the way from Caracas, Venezuela is La Mala Hierbre Nunca Muere, the fourth album from Captan, Obvio. This is the fourth studio album created, produced and distributed entirely by the band as they strongly believe in making independent rare music, which has got to be respected.
Fortunately for us British folk and for the people overseas who may not speak the same language, Captan, Obvio has recorded the majority of the tracks in English, and accompanied them with quite simply the best song titles. I mean, who wouldn’t want to listen to a track called How’bout Just The Tip (Balls Deep)? Or a track called Faster, Pussycat Drink, Drink?
With all immaturity aside these are some good songs. There is a ton of instruments used throughout the album, allowing each track to have their own personalities without appearing too similar to eachother. The genres are swapped from country/folk to high energy driven punk rock, making this album very stop-start and completely unpredictable. The chaotic nature of the record makes it easy to forget about the language barrier in the songs written in Captan, Obvio’s native tongue, and even easier to enjoy it.
