Mexican Summer Celebrate 100th Release With Ford & Lopatin, Tamaryn, & Shannon Funchess

Since 2008, Mexican Summer has been cranking out records from some of our favorite artists like Best Coast, Washed Out, Kurt Vile, Real Estate, Nite Jewel and well, you get the picture, right? So we’re excited to see the release of their 100th record — two tracks from our synth-enamored friends Ford & Lopatin featuring Tamaryn and Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum fame.

May we suggest kicking off your night to the beat of  “Snakes,” then flipping the record for the late-night lullaby “Flying Dream” once you’ve made it back home with a belly full of Frito Pie.

Order the limited edition clear vinyl 12″ over at Mexican Summer & check out the rad cover art poster of all of the label’s past releases after the jump! [Read more…]

Tamaryn played MoMA PS1

Tamaryn and Mirror Mirror played at MoMA PS1 last weekend. As part of the museum’s “Saturday Sessions” both bands played to a packed house in a gallery space on the 3rd floor. Furthermore, Thunder Horse created unique video projections for this performance, which added tremendously to Tamaryn’s already mesmerizing set. Video edits from both Tamaryn’s and Mirror Mirror’s performances are below.

Last Night: Tamaryn & Religious to Damn

Shoegazers Tamaryn and Religious to Damn were at the newly ‘renovated’ Don Hill’s last night. Funny enough the place doesn’t look like it received a make over at all. It is now sporting a faux CBGB’s style. Tamaryn will also be at PS1 this Saturday for a free 4pm show. Religious to Damn can be caught next in Brooklyn at Union Pool on February 23.
