Amoeba Review

10/11/2013

L.A. hardcore duo It's Casual are back with the second part of their New Los Angeles opus. Though the album is dedicated to their city of residence, It's Casual's pummeling riffs and sociall conscious lyrics don't exactly paint a pretty picture of the City of Angels. Though Eddie Solis screams his way through under-two-minute chunks, his lyrics are never short of pointed, decrying specifics such as the widening wage cap, L.A.'s transit system and the fact that many teachers have to buy school supplies with their own money—that last song, "Their Own Cash," should really be LAUSD's teachers union anthem. Occasionally Solis' declarations are too on the nose, eliciting laughs where he likely wants us to think on serious issues. But the lack of in-depth discussion is made up for by those destructive guitars and smashing drums. The New Los Angeles II is enough to get you really pissed about teaching supplies, and that's more than you can say about nearly any other album out there.
