Las Robertas #3 - Marlene


It's been a little while since we've heard from Costa Rica's fabulous Las Robertas (last years Dissected Affair EP) and even longer still since I saw them live back in June 2011. That wait is over with "Marlene", the first track to be taken from their second album Days Unmade (as yet undated).
