Review: Cara y Cruz by Peryodiko

Cara Y Cruz by PeryodikoIn the grand scheme of things Peryodiko is a quiet performer. Content being relatively under the radar rather than pursuing mainstream success, reliably turning out good tunes despite many line-up changes. Cara y Cruz, their third full-length, marks a decade in the scene, and as it’s powered by a crowdfunding round, there’s an all-round air of gratitude. And it’s a strong album, a good reminder of just what they can do. While opener “Headrush” is a good introduction as any, the rush (sorry) gets much more irresistible in the second half: the one-two-three punch of “Sing”, “Huling Byahe” and “Bahid” presents a mix of sing-along, a touch of indignation and that hard-to-describe feeling of wanting to stand up and just pump your fist in the air, or something. And it’s all over in just thirty minutes. Cara y Cruz is a potent, necessary reminder to all of us of what came before and what lies ahead. [NB]4/5
