Totimoshi is an American rock band based in Los Angeles, California, United States. It was founded in Oakland, California, in 1997.

Style and reception[edit]

Totimoshi are inspired by artists such as Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix; however, the 2008 album Milagrosa borrows more from the band Shellac.[4] Milagrosa, a concept album and stylistic departure from the band's previous albums,[4] is written to the themes of the battle between love and hate, according to the vocalist, Tony Aguilar.[5] It received a 7.5/10 score on Pitchfork Media,[6] and 3/4 from the eZine Static Multimedia.[7]

The 2006 album Ladrón received a 3.5/5 score from Tiny Mix Tapes, and was praised for being "sophisticated" and "patently enjoyable".[8] It was also praised by eZines such as Deaf Sparrow.[9]
