Album Review

In the tradition of riot grrrl and female post-punk, Las Kellies’ self-titled third album is a cute serving of ramshackle rock, dealt out by three Argentinian girls. Cibo Matto and Shonen Knife have a similar aesthetic to Las Kellies, as do the Slits and ESG (covered in a charming version of “Erase You”). The songs are rough and tumble, driven by bare-boned basslines and played with glee as Ceci Kelly, Betty Kelly, and Sil Kelly chatter and shout in broken English or six of their other languages, which include Portuguese, Catalan, Japanese, German, French, and Spanish. "Scotch Whisky" reads like a description on a bottle label ("Finest Scotch whisky...distilled and bottled in Edinburgh Scotland”), and the lyrics of “Hit It Off” are short and sweet: “Hit it off straight away/Aua aua/Hit hit hit hit.” Meanwhile, “Cous Cous,” “Adwenture,” and “Bife Dos” forgo words completely, as clubhouse instrumentals. Some of these tunes break stride into a slower, art-house dub vibe, but for the rest of the 35-minute playing time, Las Kellies is an elastic romp full of quick-spirited fun.

Biography

Formed: 2005 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Las Kellies formed in Buenos Aires in 2005, patterning their sound after the raw post-punk of '70s all-female groups like the Slits and the Raincoats. Comprised of guitarist Ceci Kelly, bassist Betty Kelly, and drummer Sil Kelly (all of whom sing lead and are in no way related), the three women cut their teeth on the Argentinian music scene, starting with 2007’s Shaking Dog! and following it up with a more dancey, new wave-inspired album titled Kalimera in 2009. Both were released independently....
