It has been awhile since I have posted. The last semester of my undergraduate career has proven to be extremely busy, but alas I have found another band to review! Their name? Serapicos. 

The band is named after a small place in Portugal. On their MySpace page they classify themselves as Pop/Rock/Alternative, but I would say they are more in the Punk realm of things. Serapicos have a very raw sound about them...I am not arguing that their own classification of their music isn't correct, but I do think there is a Punk sound about them.

I am reminded of Weezer while listening to Serapicos. For my readers who do not know, I LOVE Weezer. I am especially reminded of the album Pinkerton, which is my favorite, mainly because of the raw sound.  Serapicos have that sound. The kind that makes the listener feel the music! The tune I dig the most is called "Blow Me". It has that Weezer sound, but in an original way that only Serapicos can pull off.

Check them out at the link below!  Also look for their album on iTunes "Serapicos is a Town"!
