A review for Give Ipis A Chance may be way too late, but I only got it about a few weeks ago, so maybe it's not really too late? I've been a fan of local all-girl punk rock band Flying Ipis since hearing their single Sssikreto on the radio two years ago. And for someone who doesn't take spending money lightly, their album is worth every peso. Not a day goes by since buying it has the album not played at least twice. I love it. Most played songs in the album right now are Hindi Yan Totoo and Over and Over Again. One thing about this album tho, is that it doesn't capture the kind of fire they have live. This is great to keep and put on repeat tho, till you catch them on their next gig. Because their sound on record has nothing on their high energy live performances.
And just this week, Chvrches has finally released The Bones of What You Believe! So happy to finally have my digital paws on that one and hear the rest of the album. Their influences are very clear in this one and I am enjoying every second of it.
I keep getting digital copies of foreign albums thinking that it isn't as expensive, but it really isn't. But I want to make as much space in my room as possible for when I finally get it properly decorated and start getting vinyls. I know, I know, what a hipster. But when I did a brief internship at a local studio, nothing sounds as good as vinyl. But I do have a rule for album purchases, especially for local acts: get them straight from the artist. The warm and fuzzy feels goes both ways, which is extra nice.
