For a decade and some change, Brooklyn record label Mexican Summer has released inventive music from a roster of amazing rock, folk and ambient musicians. (Allah-Las, Ariel Pink, Connan Mockasin, Drugdealer and Jessica Pratt, to name a few.) Many of their projects are reminiscnet to the LSD-soaked ’60s era. Translation? They know how to set a mood and give a subtle nod to the past without being trite. Last year, the psychedelic group celebrated its tenth birthday and commemorated the milestone by hosting a full-day rager with DJs and live music. On March 30, 2019, Mexican Summer debuts a new effort worth toasting.
In collaboration with Mike Hunchback and Ben Steidel of vinyl purveyor Co-Op 87, the team is opening two buy, sell and trade record stores. The Bushwick location is in the same complex of electronic music venue Elsewhere and the second outpost lands in Greenpoint (located in the same building as Mexican Summer’s office) later this spring.
The Bushwick shop, with wood paneled walls and op art embellishments, is carefully curated and includes a designated area hawking the label’s releases in addition to electric mix reissues, new LPs, branded products, movies and books spanning all genres. With record store day just around the corner (April 13), this is one you're going to want to hit.
