It’s been a few years since the last Pink Mexico release but talk about coming back with a bang, or at least a big dump.
The new LP, ‘Dump‘ is big. Big guitars, big drums, and even bigger hooks.
Robert Preston was, and maybe still is a drummer (Shilpa Ray, WALTZ) but not here. Pink Mexico started as a solo project with Preston on guitar and vocals, after he moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles and he self-released the first LP ‘pnik mxeico‘ in 2013, which was eventually re-released by Fleeting Youth Records.
He then moved back to Brooklyn in 2014 releasing a split 7″ with Los Angeles-based band, SunLikeDrugs as well as a 12” vinyl pressing of ‘pnik mxeico‘ by Bordeaux, France based label Big Tomato Records.
That was when Burger Records came calling and released ‘fool‘ in 2016.
With a crack band, rounded out by Ian Everall on bass and drummer Grady Walker ‘Dump‘ is reved-up rock and roll, fuzzy and hook filled, blending in all kinds of influences from the earworm work of Nirvana, and Wavves, to the psych doom of Black Mountain.
The amazing thing is, it’s a cohesive listen. This ain’t no one trick pony. Play loud.
