Mint Field – Pasar De Las Luces (Gatefold 2LP+MP3)

Image: 1616904 Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico and comprised of 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez (vocals &
guitar) and Amor Amezcua (drums & 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.
“Nada Es Estático y Evoluciona” develops from minimalism into a silent scream and “Club De
Chicas” is probably the peppiest song of the bunch. The whole record has a unique sound
that makes it stand apart from projects by contemporaries
