ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Chicharones, composed of Northwest residents Sleep and Josh Martinez are tearing up the mouths and hearts of all who come in contact. Named after the spicy crispy deep fried pork skin of the same name, los chicharrones, the musical version, are the rebirth of fresh, combining humor, harmony and a sense of showmanship, with a strength of songwriting that defies the indy-rap genre.

Their first full length offering, When Pigs Fly, is an album about creating something new out of leftovers and a dollar bag of vegetables. Its about rags to riches, struggles and suffering, and the pursuit of the dream. It?s about beer, bags of chips and the occasional bong hit. It?s about real life, and getting old, and staying young and seeing the world, and trying to bring some hope to the children. It?s about defying the odds, changing the rules, and winning the big games. It?s about doing the impossible.

With a heavy emphasis on humor, melody and old fashioned songwriting, The Chicharones have created an exceptionally unified album that features strong lyrics, fluid storytelling and captivating hooks that?ll get stuck in your head like gum on shoes. A phenomenal cohesiveness defines this record. It is not simply a collection of songs, but a streaming barrage of overwhelming hits. But don?t take it from us, we?re pretty biased.
