New Mexico

Good luck finding the band New Mexico through Google; go ahead we’ll wait. Don’t be dissuaded though sometimes you have to scratch below the surface to find the real stuff out there. Though you might want to get aboard with these guys early as New Mexico isn’t exactly flying below the radar. Currently nominated for Best Alternative Music in San Diego and recently playing a showcase put on by one of Pinpoint’s favorite blogs Aquarium Drunkard, these guys are coming on quick.

This 3 piece, formally a 4 piece called Apes of Wrath, bleeds across genres like a hemophiliac. Depending on the song you might hear notes of classic Devo, Dick Dale, Agent Orange, or Elvis Costello. Regardless of the influences these guys don’t wear them enough to blend in to monotony.  Coming off their debut release earlier in 2010, titled after the old band Apes of Wrath (buy on iTunes), New Mexico is already back in the studio.

While on a tour that stopped by Cake Shop in New York we kidnapped the guys, and drummer Dustin Elliott’s shirt, and brought them into the studios of NYC’s premiere audio postproduction company AudioEngine for an exclusive session. Please enjoy a 12 minutes of New Mexico performing “Case Closed” and “Bad Advice”, split up into smaller parts for our ADD viewers.

Make sure to download “Case Closed” for free!!!!

    Oh yeah, the band is sick, too. Methinks that the keywords ‘new mexico’ will procure quite different Google results in the near future.
