San Antonio-based band Fea embody one of the most vital tenets of punk: total and unapologetic freedom, fearlessly expressed with both fury and joy. Produced by Chicana punk legend Alice Bag, their sophomore album No Novelties finds Fea following their instincts into entirely unexpected directions (e.g., covering an early-’90s pop anthem from Mexican superstar Gloria Trevi, trash-talking en Français on a yé-yé-inspired track called “Merde”). But even in its most playful moments, No Novelties channels a classic-punk ferocity, endlessly backing Fea’s sticky melodies with breakneck rhythms, blistering guitar riffs, and boldly nuanced vocal work.

 The follow-up to their self-titled debut –a 2016 release that prompted Iggy Pop to praise Fea in the pages of Rolling Stone, with the Village Voice ranking “No Hablo Espanol” among the year’s best protest songs—No Novelties takes its title from the album-closing “Girl Band.” “It’s referring to that stereotype of how female bands are some kind of novelty with no real talent,” says Lopez. “But that’s not us at all: we know how to play our instruments, we know how to write great songs. So ‘Girl Band’ is basically a middle finger to anyone who underestimates us.”

LILIEAE (pronounced LIL-EE-AY) is a rock band with an alternative edge sound from Cleveland, Ohio.
