Tracks veer from the catchy chorus of Work It Out to the tripped out flute breakdown on Elotero Spaceman, with guitarist David Pacheco’s shapeshifter vocals creeping throughout-he takes on the role of a reverb-laden sonidero for Camisa Al Reves and morphs into a growling garage-band frontman in Muevela
Selena's Butt, 02:57.
Los Angeles trio Thee Commons is often described as a psychedelic punk cumbia band, but that’s shorthand at best. Listening to them, you hear a lot of things. You hear Spanish and some English. Singer and guitarist David Pacheco points out that the paleta in the album’s title could have different meanings. It could be like your taste buds or like an artist’s palette, he drawls (The reference to the frozen treat is a given). Over the phone, his voice has a hint of the gravelly rasp that makes his vocals so distinctive. On stage, at full volume, it blossoms into a sustained guttural fry that’s a little bit Erwin Flores of Los Saicos and a little Sam the Sham of Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs.
Altogether, Thee Commons have played well over a hundred shows, gaining in the process hundreds more in fans - those eager for something new to call their own. They have performed at several of Southern California’s prestigious venues, including The Echoplex of Echo Park, The Teragram Ballroom – both of which they’ve headlined - The Regent Theatre of Downtown Los Angeles, and the Observatory of Santa Ana; have been hosted for a residency by pocho wine bar Eastside Luv of Boyle Heights - which consisted of a weekly angled-affair.

Thee Commons - Selena’s Butt. A rowdy trio of Los Angelinos playing raging chicano punk. This band embodies the light-hearted humor embedded within Mexican-American culture. Upon first hearing this album, I just got it. It made sense given my upbringing. Ni de aqui, ni de alla, Pero aqui nos vamos a quedar.
