Tapetown Sessions w/ Mexico's 'Mint Field'


Hailing from Tijuana, Mexico alternative shoegaze band MINT FIELD toured the USA with Ulrika Spacek before embarking on their European tour covering countries such as Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, UK and France amongst others.


The band had recently recorded their new EP that was duo to come out following the concerts across Europe and USA. Before their show in Aarhus at local venue Atlas the band came by the recording studio for a live session of some of their new songs off of the upcoming EP.


This is the song 'Jardin de la Paz' taken from the live in studio session the band did here at Tapetown on Lydhavnen.



Swirling guitar patterns, soft and chanting vocals, laid back lo-fi drums beneath intricate bass themes most of the time ranging from soft indie to noisy fuzz alternative.


This band was a pleasure to have in the studio, they were all very pleasant people and talented musicians. It's nice to see an upcoming band peeking through the underground, which is the came with these artists. Having played Coachella as well as having their record label send them on world tours to promote their release is nice for any band, and its especially a pleasure when they're coming out of Mexico, where you don't often see many great artists emerge into the American and European "mainstream" or at least underground scene.

We hope to see much more from the band in the future and next time they are touring Europe and swing by Denmark or Aarhus, we will definitely do another recording with them.

Fra Tijuana, Mexico kom MINT FIELD direkte fra at have turneret USA rundt med Ulrika Spacek før de påbegyndte deres europæiske tour i lande som bl.a. Danmark, Holland, Tyskland, Storbritannien og Frankrig.


Bandet havde for nylig indspillet deres nye EP, der stod til at udkomme efter koncerterne i Europa og USA. Før deres koncert i på Atlas i Århus kom bandet forbi vores lydstudie for at indspille en live session med nogle af deres nye sange fra den kommende EP.


Svævende guitarer, en blød og nærmest messende vokal, tilbagelænede lo-fi trommer i sammenspil med interessante bas temaer fik deres sange til at skifte fra blød indie til støjende fuzz.


Bandet var en fornøjelse at have i studiet, de var alle meget søde mennesker og talentfulde musikere. Det er dejligt at se et undergrunds-band titte lidt frem fra undergrunden, hvilket er tilfældet med disse kunstnere. Efter at have spillet Coachella samt at deres pladeselskab har sendt dem på verdenstourné for at promovere deres udgivelse er de godt på vej ind i folks bevidsthed. Og det er især en fornøjelse, når de kommer fra Mexico, hvor du ikke ofte ser så mange gode bands på den alternative scene række ud til den amerikanske og europæiske "mainstream" eller i det mindste undergrunds scenen.


Vi håber at se meget mere fra bandet i fremtiden, og næste gang de tournerer Europa og kommer forbi Danmark eller Århus, vil vi helt sikkert lave nye indspilninger i vores studie med dem.
