Pega Monstro - "Partir a Loica"

Portugal's greatest garage punk sister duo are back with a brand new song! We first discovered Pega Monstro with the release of Alfarroba back in 2015. "Partir a Loica" is the first song off their upcoming album Casa de Sima, their third overall.

Not being a lyrics guy, I'm completely ok with songs done entirely in other languages that I, as an ignorant American, don't understand a single word of. In case you're curious, "Partir a loica" is a common Portuguese phrase that roughly translates to "break all the dishes," and is used to mean shake things up. "Partir a Loica," the song, is pretty much a perfect garage punk song. It's catchy as can be, with crunchy sounding guitars, but yet it still has a pretty melody you'll sing even if you don't understand a single word. And then the bridge comes in just as hard as The White Stripes at their most punk.

You can listen to "Partir a Loica" below. Casa de Sima will be released on June 2 on Upset the Rhythm. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on Pega Monstro, check them out on Facebook.
