EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite its deceptively ethereal opening, Pasar de las Luces quickly taps into the visceral side of classic shoegaze and post-rock, balancing dreamily abstract noise with decidedly physical riffs. Mexican duo Mint Field pay homage to the cavernous, quiet-to-loud crunch of Mogwai ("Viceversa"), the speaker-blowing majesty of Ride ("Cambios Del Pasar"), and the surging pulse of early Stereolab ("Quiero Otoño De Nuevo"). And whether placid or pounding, all of these feedback-singed anthems get a dose of dark pop bliss thanks to singer/guitarist Estrella Sanchez's lost-in-the-haze coo.
