Look Mexico releasing ‘Uniola’ (stream “You’re Lucky You Didn’t Lose Your Arm”)
Tallahassee, FL’s Look Mexico have been making quality math rock for over a decade. Their first EP came out in 2005, and other splits, EPs, and two full lengths followed. Now they’re set to release their third album and first for Tiny Engines, Uniola. It’s due out on June 24 via the label (pre-order vinyl or digital), and we’re premiering a new song from it, “You’re Lucky You Didn’t Lose Your Arm.”
Look Mexico have a similar knack to blending math rock with pop music to Minus the Bear, Maps & Atlases, and comparative newcomers A Great Big Pile of Leaves. If you’re into those bands but you don’t listen to Look Mexico, you should change that now. “You’re Lucky You Didn’t Lose Your Arm” has hooks for days, and the complex musicianship impresses without ever distracting from the songwriting. It’s been a while since a great album in this style came out (maybe not since that 2013 AGBPOL LP?), so this fills a void that really needed to be filled. Listen to the new song below.
1. Ride Or Die, Remember?
2. Well, Kansas Ain’t What It Used To Be.
3. You’re Lucky You Didn’t Lose Your Arm
4. I Even Got This Scar To Match
5. Next Time, Send A Limo
6. We Are Groot.
7. Ice? Yeah, You Could Chisel Some Off Your Heart, If You Could Find It.
8. Ok, Ok, I’ll Turn Down The Music
9. My Superman Seat-Grab Barrel Roll? I’m Still Working On It.
10. I Was Raised With A Different Kind Of Loyalty, You Know What I Mean. I Vote No. (Remember The Second You Go Through That Door, Everything Changes. Our Old Life Is Done.)
11. That Was The Flame Thrower. Use The Rockets. (digital only)
