Mexican Slang - Blisters

Toronto’s Mexican Slang will release their official debut EP Inside The Velvet Castle on July 15th via Buzz Records.

A thrilling blast of psych rock and garage punk, that recalls the best of Fugazi to vintage Cramps, it is all twisted together within infectious melodies that are equal parts rough and deceivingly sweet.

Lead by Annabelle Lee, the EP is a reflection of her time committed to a psychiatric facility with each song written from the perspective of a different patient, struggling with a distinct dilemma. She says, “The songs are a combination of frantic, schizophrenic, manic episodes between periods of lucidity and sedation. The theme of this album is the collective purging of shame, anger and isolation by these individuals and therefore by me, as each subject’s story actually represents a personal thought or experience.”

Lead track is Blisters, an intense, distorted classic-in-waiting, underpinned by a vicious, needling refrain and scorching percussion.

Order from Bandcamp here.
