Reacción Direkta ("Direct Reaction" in English) hail from San José, Costa Rica. They describe themselves as “California punk with Latin American passion.” They’re pretty dead on. I caught them at a show in their hometown at which they opened for Millencollin, A Wilhelm Scream and After the Fall—and deservedly so. The band is legit, and they killed it in front of 2000 kids that night. Their seven-song EP, ¿Cuál Democracia? (What Democracy?), is filled to the brim with some of the finest and most tight-knit melodic skate/street punk I've heard in some time. And not only do they play with heart, but they can actually play. Like, ripping (though not cheesy) solos, crisp, hum-able vocal melodies and all. It’s no wonder Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore put their mixing and mastering stamp of approval on the record.
