Look Mexico – The Crucial EP

I found this little gem of a band when I heard that Lujo Records (Drugstore Cowboys, Roy) had some new signees. Florida’s Look Mexico is the closest any band has come to in recreating the sound of American Football – they pull it off phenomenally. However, I would hardly say they’re the same. Firstly, the obvious difference in the production quality of both band’s material – rather than possessing a rough, atmospheric sound, Look Mexico’s recordings are more lush and vibrant. Look Mexico also demonstrates difference from its harbinger in style – while the band at times may share the same post-emo sound of American Football’s “Honestly?”, the guitarwork also falls into a more arpeggiated landscape, sometimes resembling the intricate yet driving hooks of Minus the Bear. Comparisons aside, Look Mexico’s The Crucial EP makes me feel warm inside. It’s feel-good music that should appeal to pretty much anybody.
