Little Girls

You should think about getting down with Mexican Summer. Here's why:
"Mexican Summer is a limited edition vinyl and digital only label. Our records are pressed in very limited quantities and are also available for download via our website. The vinyl will also be available on a subscription basis and at a select group of exclusive indie retailers across the country. 2-3 albums will be released every other month in various formats - 12", 7", Picture Disc, etc and will be beautifully packaged, numbered, pressed on high quality virgin vinyl and include a download card."
They mostly deal in neo psych/garage, and have released records by the likes of Wooden Shjips, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Golden Triangle, Kurt Vile and more. The most recent Mexican Summer offering that has caught my attention comes from Toronto post-punk group Little Girls. Here's the skinny, a couple of tracks from the EP, and a link for your mouse. Use of headphones is highly recommended.
"Mexican Summer is proud to announce the debut release from Toronto pop band Little Girls. Originally conceived as a solo project from Josh McIntyre's other band Pirate/Rock, it wasn't long before these five tracks made their way across the blogosphere. Now they make their way to you, on vinyl. Little Girls' sound rests comfortably into a modern lo-fi demographic, stirring up shoegaze, bedroom goth, and memorable riffage into tiny, murky little packages of joyful release. Drum machine, hazy vocals and plenty of thick guitar strum are what's in store."
