Huw's DIY Label of the Week - Mexican Summer
This week, Huw's DIY Label of the Week is Mexican Summer from Brooklyn, New York.
Huw met up with Andreas and Keith from the label at the showcase party they put on at South by Southwest, which featured live sets from bands like The Young, Weekend, Washed Out, Dum Dum Girls and The Bitters from the label's roster. You can see pictures from the showcase on the Gorilla vs Bear blog or some rather nice hand-drawn illustrations over at AustinKleon.com.
Mexican Summer only puts out high quality vinyl releases, each with a card which allows you to download the tracks. It's the sister label of Kemado Records.
You can hear Huw's chat with the guys from Mexican Summer if you listen again to last night's show on Radio 1.
