Mint Field's album Pasar De Las Luces. Available here on Double Vinyl, CD, and Cassette.
Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico and comprised of 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez (vocals and guitar) and Amor Amezcua (drums and synths), Mint Field’s sound is organic, spacious, and inhabited by spectres that lurk behind rhythms, where Estrella’s angelic voice evokes a supernatural world of beauty and melancholy. Pasar De Las Luces, their first for LA-based Innovative Leisure Records, is “a compilation of our lives from two years ago to now” says the band. Its 13 immaculate tracks nod to everything from dream pop to fuzz-saturated shoegaze. Album opener El Parque Parecía No Tener Fin, is a melodic number with haunting melodic lines where we can appreciate their post-punk tendencies. Ciudad Satélite has woven harmonies and crescendos that detonate into a flurry of feelings anchored by a dramatic bassline. Quiero Otoño De Nuevo goes full krautrock and is like an introverted, reflective and delicate Neu!. Cambios Del Pasar borrows the distorted and imperfect guitar sounds of ‘90s indie bands like Yo Lat Tengo.
