Tijuana based duo Mint Field released their debut album Pasar De Las Luces back in February via Innovative Leisure. Our song of the day is the early single "Quiero Otoño de Nuevo," a hazy psychedelic shoegaze track whose title can be translated as "I wish it was autumn again." Estrella Sanchez and Amor Amezcua said this about the making of the song: “This was a song we wrote on the studio, we had the principal idea, we had the lyrics but we didn’t have the song finished and ready to record. We put everything together in the studio, was a beautiful and fun process. Our producer, Chris, heard us and he told me, 'We have to record this song and I´ll make sure it sounds just like your t-shirt!', I was wearing a New! shirt. This track is about the horizon, shadows and how infinite they are.” The video for the song focuses on a pair of malfunctioning digital billboards and the frazzled technician in charge of operating them. Mint Field stopped by KEXP for an in-studio session last month.
