Tamaryn is what I like to think of as the shoegaze version of Liz Harris, everyones’ favorite drone queen. Dreamy melodies, moments of psychedelia, and a beautiful arrangement of swirling guitars render into a giant tidal wave leading to heavenly bliss. Tamaryns initial release was a 7” with True Panther, back in 2009, that included the very well-done bass prominent track Mild Confusion, Joy Division influence noted. Her new track, Sandstone, is off of an upcoming Mexican Summer LP called The Waves, an LP surely to remind you of every possible dream-pop/shoegaze/80s Punk band you’ve loved and adored as an angsty teenager.
Tamaryn: Mild Confusion
Everyones’ favorite pricey/limited edition label, Mexican Summer, is repressing Real Estate’s Reality EP on tie-dye splatter vinyl limited to 1000 copies, and in addition 1000 will be pressed on classic black. Californias’ Pearl Harbor is also getting their Something About The Chaparrals repressed on turquoise, limited to 2000 copies. Get em’ before they are gone!
Pearl Harbor: Luv Goon
Real Estate: Younger Than Yesterday
Anyone remember The Mayfair Set? If you were lucky enough to catch the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Festival this past summer, you might have seen their only show, with Dee Dee from The Dum Dum Girls being from California and ‘Mr. Blank Dog’ being from Brooklyn, and all. I remember Already Warm being one of my most played songs of the summer. Any way, just checking out some of Mexican Summers’ future releases and noticed ‘The Mayfair Set’ on the list. Double checked The Mayfair Set’s myspace, and sure enough: ‘working on the LP’.
In other Mexican Summer news, also noticed future releases from Washed Out (got an email from Ernest Greene himself saying to watch for near-future releases from Lee Weather and Washed Out), Campfires, and Real Estate are planned. Oh boy. Can’t wait to pay some exorbitant amount of money for a Mexican Summer LP/EP that I know I’ll have to own. I also kind of wonder what bands feel like when they get a deal from Mexican Summer. I mean, their artist line-up is so solid…
Started listening after reading a tweet by Mexican Summer-they are putting out a 12” soon. The Dunes have played shows with Pearl Harbor and High Places, and will be playing a show with Best Coast and Brilliant Colors. For people who want to hear 90s guitar pop soaked in psych-fuzz.
