Review: Latin for Truth – We Are Sick of Not Having The Courage To Be Absolute Nobodies

Label: Pitfall Records

Released: Summer 2009

Some bands can get by on simply having big, open, honest hearts to fuel their music. They don’t have to be particularly creative as their appeal lies more in soul than songwriting. Latin For Truth is like that…except, despite having more than enough in their hearts to make just about anything compelling, they don’t rely on that alone. Instead, they fill (and I do mean fill) this three song EP with melodies that wrap their arms around you and proceed blast them out with a wild rhythmic ride beneath. We Are Sick of Not Having The Courage To Be Absolute Nobodies rolls laughter, tears, anger and every other human emotion into what is ultimately the joy of being alive.
