“Ahh yes, Leche Malo. A handsome bunch. You'll find yourself blindsided in a most refreshing way. Song structures that go from verse to chorus to...Pluto, replete with unexpected sonic zigs and zags...expert musicianship...inventive genre-hopping. It's fun! And tying it all together? Why, it'd be the great unifier of humanity, of course — unrelenting sexual neurosis. Smashing!”
