Primeras Salidas is the debut recording from Tijuana’s Mint Field. Influenced by dream-pop, shoegaze, and early 1980’s Cherry Red artists, this young trio belongs to a new generation of international bands embracing these sounds and doing interesting things with them. Primeras Salidas, which roughly translates to “first deliveries,” has interesting rhythm changes, a combination of ethereal and soft-spoken vocal moments, loud hypnotic guitars, and pleasant melodies. The band has great chemistry that shows not only on the record but also in their live sets. I saw them at Viva! Pomona this year and their set was one of the highlights of the two-day festival. They sounded flawless and energetic. A very promising act on the rise.

RIYL: Lorette Meets The Obsolete, Chasms, Dear Eloise, Vaya Futuro, and, Slowdive.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6

1. (4:43) **El Otro Lugar – Exuberant track with lot of interesting rhythmic changes. Increases speed towards the end. Always playable.
2. (3:33) *Petty Box – Part instrumental, part spoken word composition with passionate guitar parts.
3. (2:22) **Douglas – Part Goth, part post-punk tune, upbeat and quite striking. Male vocals.
4. (3:30) *Laika – Track reminiscent of early 1980’s Cherry Red Records pop releases. Mid-tempo beat with a catchy melody.
5. (4:00) Clouds – Playful tune with intense vocals.
