  • Summary: The Los Angeles punk band releases its second full-length album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 12
  2. Negative: 0 out of 12
  1. While not as hybrid as Abe Vigoda nor as melodic as Jay Reatard, these women kick out a place in the musical universe through sheer, happy, blasting audacity.
  2. It’s catchy, committed, prehensile punk rock.
  3. Just 22 minutes long, We Be Xuxa doesn't waste time in proving that Mika Miko can expand on their Cali-punk roots without losing what made them vital in the first place.
  4. Xuca keeps the listener at a chasmic distance from anything resembling intensity or urgency.
  5. Many moments of We Be Xuxa come close to fulfilling the band's Slits-meets-Wipers mania, but much of the record feels so giddily tossed off that one almost wishes for a little sheen.
  6. Their live shows are always explosive fun, but for the first time, the ladies (and their new dude drummer) capture their rowdy energy in a studio.
  7. 50
    No one can deny the Los Angeles group's enthusiasm. However as for Mika Miko's album, their creativity seems numbed by monotonous repetition.
