Mexican Slang

Toronto's Mexican Slang are releasing their debut EP, Inside the Velvet Castle, on July 15 via Buzz Records, the label responsible for releasing many other great young Toronto bands recently such as Greys, Odonis Odonis, HSY, and Weaves. The new single from that EP, "Halcyon," is entrancing psychedelic rock that sounds straight out of a smoke-filled, lava lamp-covered bedroom in 1969. That song premieres in this post and can be streamed, along with the garagier EP opener "Blisters," below. You can pre-order here.

Mexican Slang also have a tour coming up that brings them to our side of the border for a few shows, including Brooklyn on July 19 at Death by Audio. No other bands have been announced for that show yet but stay tuned.

All dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Toronto hipsters LOL.

Give it up Toronto, you're so Johnny Come Lately when it comes to music it's pathetic.

Seriously name me at least TEN bands from Toronto who existed before 2000 worth a shit, and don't tell me Kittie, Sum 41, Chokehold, Left For Dead, and Grade who were all GARBAGE.

Oh, so Toronto/metro produced ZERO bands anyone outside the area knew about before 2000 thus sucking even worse, thanks!

Toronto was so dead it didn't even have those five shit bands LOL.

4:29pm They're a bunch of wannabe '80s tryhards. The girl has it right with the hair but nothing else. If she really wanted to be an '80s girl, she'd dress like Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan or Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles. She looks more like a goth metal girl than an '80s girl.
