Mexican Summer presents "Cardamom", newest EP release from "Weyes Blood" and USA Tour!

Weyes Blood, being my younger sister, Natalie Mering is killing it lately.  Non-stop touring Europe and the States and putting out quality music every time she records.   We recorded the vocals for this EP here in my bedroom in Bedstuy Brooklyn.  It is some of my favorite music of hers so please support her and pick up this album whether digitally or on vinyl.  It is well worth it and some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard and I am not just saying this because shes my sister.  It truly is groundbreaking music.

the track-listing to my knowledge is

1. Maybe Love
2. Take You There
3. Cardamom
4. In The Beginning

although it may change...

As well as two new tracks from her upcoming album.  Legendary recording and performance artist, Alice Cohen has done it again with an amazing video/song as well as an album that I cannot wait to hear!  A living legend, Alice Cohen is the best kept secret in music in Brooklyn for the past 10 years! OLDE ENGLISH SPELLING BEE, the classic underground label has the privilege of releasing Alice Cohen's newest LP!

Also 2 new tracks from Alice Cohen's new album are available for stream through Soundcloud below.  They are amazing.  Looking Glass is one of the best songs I have heard in years, she is the most slept on artist I have had the privilege of knowing personally besides maybe Sam Mehran,  my sister (Natalie Mering)and myself of course, (lol).  I also have a collaboration in the works with Alice Cohen so look forward to that coming out soon on GUNKTVRECORDS!  Keep checking back over here @ GuNkTvReCoRdS because you never know what Gunk'd out music or artwork you may find!  Don't miss out.   History is being made as we speak.  Enjoy the music and video!!

Anyways enjoy her new video from Olde English Spelling Bee:
