The Vacant Lots
The Vacant Lots
Mexican Summer artists The Vacant Lots released their first 7" single 'Confusion / Cadillac' in 2011.
Pitchfork commented on 'Confusion', "It's executed so efficiently, with just the right doses of studied apathy and simmering tension, that it's difficult not to return to it's ceaselessly repetitive groove again and again."
Mexican Summer describes them as "musicians as well as scientists, having built a time machine that will transport your headspace directly to the Sunset Strip in 1967."

The duo takes as much inspiration from Bo Diddley and The Stooges as it does from Andy Warhol and Arthur Rimbaud and have developed their own sound, combining a minimalist aesthetic of rock n roll with hypnotic guitar riffs, heavy drumming, electronic drones, poetry-driven lyrics and visual projections -- creating a live multi-media experience.

The Vacant Lots have previously toured with Sonic Boom's Spectrum, Dean Wareham plays Galaxie 500, and most recently performed at Austin Psych Fest with The Black Angels and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The Vacant Lots are currently working on their debut album with NYC engineer/producer Ted Young and expect to have their second 7" single out on The Reverberation Appreciation Society by summer 2012.
Heaven are a shiny new collaboration from New Yorkers Matt Sumrow (The Comas, Dean and Britta, Ambulance LTD), Mikey Jones (The Big Sleep, Snowden, Swervedriver), and Ryan Lee Dunlap (Fan-Tan). A romantic clash between your Dad's long lost favorite psych record and the soundtrack to a John Hughes film, Heaven ride a big sonic wave to deliver their dear and dreamy songs.
