LP single sleeve / CD - Digisleeve "There's still plenty of riot in these girls" Allmusic // "Fearsome levels of cool" Louder Than War // Following the release of ,Total Exposure" the fiery Argentinian grrl group Las Kellies return with new album ,Friends & Lovers".

Inflected new wave post-punk blends garage-psych with infectiously deft dance beats and melodic pop.

,Friends & Lovers" fuzzed-up gems sees them move away from the heavier dub sounds of their last record instead sinking their teeth into a groove like Thee Oh Sees with the spirit of ESG and Delta 5.

Rupturing with dance floor classics like ,Sugar Beat" and ,I Don't Care", they effortlessly move into sun-soaked psych-pop tunes (,Summer Breeze", ,Sun Goes Down") with slow grooving honeyed tones, shimmering guitars and propulsive percussion.

Produced by Iván Diaz Mathé (credits include Lee "Scratch" Perry & Mad Professor), who's worked on their previous records.
