PO now: Spanish Love Songs - Schmaltz

Recommended Posts

Out March 30 on A-F Records.

Bundle and lp options.


Spanish Love Songs is a five piece punk band based in Los Angeles, CA. They formed in 2014 after the demise of a previous band and a chance Craiglist post about lonely people looking to go to punk shows. Their sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows with the immediacy of intimate, lived-in lyrics.

The band has spent the past two years expanding their sound both musically and lyrically, as evidenced by the songs on Schmaltz. More anthemic than ever, the band confidently tears through these songs in which Slocum turns his attention inward, trying to find positivity and self-acceptance in a world that doesn’t always feel like home. 

It’s new territory for the band of so-called grouch punks, as they try to grow into the best version of the band (& themselves). They’ll try to enjoy it.

***please note: this is a pre-order item and will ship on or around it's release date of 3/30/18***




New song: 


RIYL; the Menzingers, Pup, Captain We're Sinking

had to preorder this, reminds my of the menzingers :-)

Heh, I recommended this band to a couple of friends and when I asked them what they thought, they said "Oh, you mean that new Menzingers record?  Yeah, it's pretty good!"  One of my friends said that if I'd just played SLS for him without telling him what band it was, he would have totally thought it was a new Menzingers album.

I mean hey, there's far worse bands to emulate!  And this album is definitely a contender for AOTY.

I just got into this band recently. Is all their stuff always impossible to get?

What are you looking for from them?


If you want a colored copy of Schmaltz that ships from the US, I would keep an eye on the A-F Records page:
None available now but you can click the "Want an "It's Available!" Email Notification?" link to be notified when they add another, can't imagine you'd have to wait long.


And there is a "beer" copy of BFE on MerchNow at the moment:

It's not as nice as some of the other presses they've had in the past, but it should hold you over for now, especially considering it's only $18 before shipping.
