Hawaiian Gremlins – Mogwai Love
Sometimes I think that we should just sit back and think about how hard it would be to find new music without the help of the internet. We often take it for granted and really, it’s hard not to, but the fact that an artist can make something in another country, state, or even down the street and still have it reach listeners no matter where they might be is nothing short of extraordinary.
Early yesterday morning I was introduced to a trio out of Mexico by the name of Hawaiian Gremlins and now that it’s a day later I think it’s safe to say that they’re a shoe in for one of my new favorites of the year. With a peculiar yet lovable debut EP that blends the same charismatic, 80’s sway of New Order with the lush jangle of Beach Fossils, it’s hard to believe that these guys haven’t even been making music together for a full year but regardless, that hasn’t stopped me from wearing it out as much as possible during a 24 hour time span. Hawaiian Gremlins also happens to be a part of a fresh Mexico based digital label called RVRB Music that just dropped Vibe To The Future (Part 1) , a compilation highlighting even more great talent in their scene, and I highly suggest grabbing it along with their EP, Teenage Ways, over on bandcamp for whatever price you choose.
