Customer Reviews

Chikita is the best!!!

Many of the reviews say this band sounds exactly like Broken Social Scene. Personally, I don't think so, I mean, you can obviously hear the "layering" details classic of the Newfeld sound, but I think Chikita is much more elgant. They are likeable at first, but once you trully acquire the taste for Chikita's music, you will notice subtleties and colors absent in BSS. A remarkable band, I expect nothing but great things from these guys.


Good. Sounds like BSS. Worth a listen.

Really diggin' it

I first heard of Chikita Violenta through a friend in Toronto. You can hear the Newfeld trademark sound. Surprising release; I'm glad it's now available. "Laydown" could easily be on my Best of 2007 list. Also loving "Eight Miles High" (Byrds cover) and the bombastic "War". Lots of shoegazing-wall of sound production makes it a grower.


Formed: 2000 in Mexico City, Mexico

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Mexican indie rock band Chikita Violenta formed when the group met in high school in 2000. Luis Arce, Andrés Velasco, Esteban Suarez, and Armando David produced their self-titled debut on their own in 2003, and recruited producer Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals, Los Campesinos!) for their second album, The Star and Suns Sessions. After touring in and around their home base of Mexico City and doing a west coast tour of the states, the band returned to recording with Newfeld...
