Quiero Otoño De Nuevo - Mint Field

from the album Pasar De Las Luces (2018)

Mint Field are a shoegaze duo from Tijuana, Mexico consisting of Estrella Sanchez and Amor Amezcua.  As if that alone is not enough to make you give them a spin, Estrella's previous career was as a professional bowler.

On their debut LP, Pasar De Las Lucas, I am really digging their song Quiero Otoño De Nuevo.  This tune applies their shoegaze craft over a hard and steady beat that is nicely paired with a tasty groove.  I am particularly enamored with the bass line.  They then add elements of  psychedelia to the mix.  The end result is something you might expect to hear from a band like Yo La Tengo.

When I compare Mint Field with other young bands a few miles up the coast in Southern California, I find them to be more cerebral and textured, less of a beach party or a retro-pop redux.

Mint Field's debut is impressive.  I can't wait to find out where they take their music from here.
