If you are an L.A.-area musician who would like to submit unreleased songs or videos of any genre for premiere, email a stream or download link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Santa Barbara duo Mexico City Blondes sound like they make music at (and for) the moment the clock strikes midnight—especially this cosmopolitan cloud-of-smoke song “Addio.” (“Goodbye” but in Italian, which is just so perfect for this band.) The silhouette of Portishead looms over this like the mystery man in a film noir, but there’s plenty of classy continental influence as well—like the unexpected fuzz guitar that sounds like it came off some giallo-ready library album. Mexico City Blondes’ Blush is out May 3 on Burger Records—pre-order here!
