Mesita – Damage

October 14, 2013

One of our favorite albums of 2012 was undoubtedly Mesita’s The Coyote. It was full of classics like “Ken Caryl”, “William Cannon”, and the track that originally introduced us to this talented 24 year-old, “Onward Upward”. Now even though with his new album Future Proof he’s taken a slightly different approach with his sound, we’re happy to see that the results are the same. We appreciate these kinds of artists at Lower Frequencies who don’t become complacent with the sound that might have first achieved them success. It’s those artists willing to break free from their comfort zone and explore new territory that are poised for the brightest futures. “Damage” reminds me of a blend between any track off Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs and the raw, abrupt guitar featured in Grizzly Bear’s “Cheerleader.” Words and analogies can only do this track so much justice though, at a certain point you’ve just got to press play and see for yourself.
