    You Forgot It In People producer (and BSS member) David Newfeld is on board, as are a few other labelmates, but the band's own noise-pop personality ultimately shines through.

    Tre3s feels like an expression of triumph, with a sound that seems to embody the confidence of youth not yet jaded and with nothing but potential ahead.

    It's true that Tre3s still finds Chikita Violenta seeking a sound completely their own, but they're closer than ever, due in large part to the improved quality of the songwriting and arrangements.

    While the production's scope doesn't quite fit Chikita Violenta's knack for scrappy Superchunk-style guitar pop, the busy shimmer usually complements the songs' energy instead of burying it.

    TRE3S, their third long-player (released by the Canadian supergroup's Arts & Crafts imprint), finds them continuing to home in on shapes and textures of their own.

    Mexican quartet Chikita Violenta hand claps a tight cell of indie rock scientists, its gang vox consistent with use here of Broken Social Scene knobist David Newfeld, who also produced these muchachos' 2007 album.
