Video: Look Mexico at Red 7 [Feb. 21]

Look Mexico is one of those bands that's gonna have the ability to cross over between various age groups of music fans. They were featured recently in Alternative Press magazine with a full-page interview, but I could just as easily picture this band on Paste or (gasp!) Pitchfork.

Originally from Tallahassee, Look Mexico is now based in Austin (as of two months ago). It's a little-known fact that they relocated, but word will get out in the coming months, as the band is set to release its sophomore full-length, To Bed To Battle, in March.

The band recently played a bunch of new songs at Red 7. The new CD was also on sale at the show. I highly recommend picking To Bed To Battle up when it's out in stores. Production-wise, it sounds great. And these are some of the best lyrics I've heard in a while—clever, sincere and heartfelt. It's emo music for intelligent people who dress normal.

"You Stay. I Go. No Following."

"No Wonder I'm Still Awake"

"Take it Upstairs, Einstein"
