Braggers is the self-titled debut solo album on Russian Winter Records, from seminal Kansas City punk musician Este Leon, The eight tracks are edgy affairs with compelling guitar parts, Strummer-esque vocals and enough jangle to shake down a building. The lead track "Brighter Day is destined to become a punk classic with its heavy mid-tempo vibe and anthemic chorus.

"Braggers present a powerful potent punk rock on their punchy self-titled debut. Deserving to be blasted at a physical volume the songs are an absolute rush. Vocals ride the din of the distorted, dazed guitars and the driving rhythms. Everything works together to create a compelling whole of sound. Lyrically the songs work best as a series of short stories, with each one offering a snapshot of a life lived most fully. These stories embody hope of a potentially better life, of embracing the simple pleasures available to all, and an approach kind of gleeful abandon." Beach Sloth Music Blog

"Punk indeed never dies. It ages a bit, that's true but it's always nice to hear some uncomplicated songs about everyday observations. Enter Kansas City punk artist Este Leon, the man behind the solo project Braggers. Russian Winter Records released this fine debut and it's a great throwback into the early days of punk, and post-punk for that matter." Merchants of Air Music Blog
