“(LoCura) Fuse elements of punk, funk, reggae and Cuban son to create a sound that’s as urgent — and exhilarating — as the politics of resistance they embrace." — WASHINGTON POST (4/16/12 in print and online)
“LoCura is an explosion of sonic sunshine with crisp percussion and guitar work, driving bass lines, soaring brass, and dynamic sass from lead singer Kata Miletich”
— Rupa Marya from Rupa and the April Fishes
