Along with help from Nacional, the Venezualan dance-punk four-piece La Vida Boheme’s debut LP, Nuestra, is being released in the U.S. on May 10. Formed more than three years ago, the group gained a massive following through its kinetic live shows before ever releasing a recording.
The Caracas-based band claims influences as diverse as LCD Soundsystem, the Clash and Argentine singer Mercedes Sosa. The overall sound created is a more energetic, Spanish-speaking Bloc Party. After the release of Nuestra, the group will bring its wild live show to the U.S. for the first time on July 6 for the Latin Alternative Music Conference in New York City.
