Los Mundos Las Montañas
Monterrey’s Los Mundos are dropping their fourth studio album in five years, and their seventh overall release. It might not seem like much on paper, but when you factor in how many records some of their contemporaries have released in the same period it’s very impressive. The duo, comprised of Luis Ángel Martínez and Alejandro “Chivo” Elizondo, have slowly built one of Mexico’s most consistent discographies. Hearing their sound evolve since their inception in 2011 is refreshing. Their brilliant eponymous debut wears its shoegaze influences on its sleeve. Las Montañas is not a concept album, but it’s presented as journey, with many songs bleeding into the next through sonic explorations. At the same time, this is one of the most eclectic releases in Mundos’ discography, where Sabbath riffs collide with weird experiments and into alternative rock territory. This album is pressed on aqua blue mix 140 gram vinyl and has a download card.
