Following two strong EPs, Philadelphia punk trio Cayetana is finally releasing their highly anticipated debut LP, Nervous Like Me. The album opener, “Serious Things Are Stupid”, begins with a private reflection from singer Augusta Koch: “I came here alone / and I plan to leave that way, but I find comfort in all of the things you say.” Following this quiet confession, the band kicks into a fierce frenzy. Koch's voice contains a heaviness that is matched by the crashing instruments of Kelly Olsen and Allegra Anka. The final moments where Koch wails, “You won't change your ways” are absolutely heartbreaking.
