How many bands have you seen play in sweaty, smoky, basements? How many bands have you had shout nearly indecipherable lyrics at you while some smelly crusty spills a double deuce of High Life down the back of your jacket? Pteradon is all of those bands at once, and more.
Their sound’s something like a hoarse-voiced man screaming insights while a bunch of math majors play in odd time signatures at volumes almost intolerable by the human body. If you want it spelled out for you, it’s math-rock post-punk with attitude.
The page for ¡VIVA! at Quote Unquote has the album for download. There’s lyrics and artwork, as well. They’d like you to kick $5 towards the cause, if you’d be so kind.
