Now if that's not summer-music, then I don't know!

THE CARTELS from Vancouver just play the sound that you could easily imagine on the beach or the way there: Punk'n'Roll of the snotty and fresh kind, which you just have to like.

Fast songs like "Hanna Don't Cry", "Jesus Was A Friend Of Mine", "Schizophrenic" or "Generation Xs" wipe away your bad mood like the wind drives away the clouds in the sky.

Without respect they deal out their good mood, without paying homage to any of the hip currents of music today.

Even though it is not really Metal-compatible, this album really works out in the right situation!
