Mint Field's Pasar de la Luces wears it's influences proudly, yet doesn't overindulge them, creating a unique and organic soundscape. The album is a tour de force with a profound focus on dream pop and fuzz-soaked shoegaze but it's definitely not limited to just that bandwidth. Take the fifth cut, "Quiero Otono De Nuevo," for example; the track employs a driving bass line with a non-stop motorik beat, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of a delicate and angelic Neu!. The group has one foot in the past, and the other in the future, reminding the listener of acts like My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, Yo La Tengo, Diiv, and even Spiritualized, yet delivering a sound that is entirely their own. Good things are to come from, and for, Mint Field, and we're happy to be here for these early steps of what will be an interesting journey.
