“Landing somewhere between My Bloody Valentine's poppiest moments, Wavves least bratty missives, the result is something like if Nirvana had had a surf rock phase." – Noisey

“Brooklyn via LA Pink Mexico plays a gritty brand of fuzz rock, but their airy melodies with psychedelic inflections counteract the harshness of their distorted sound.” – The Deli

“…the kind of fuzzy, driving garage punk that you can always trust Burger to put out.” 
– BrooklynVegan

“…one heckuva skronky/crunchy high that you never want to end.” – Impose

After playing drums for countless other bands, including Shilpa Ray and WALTZ, Robert Preston went for a change and began his solo project, Pink Mexico. After moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, Preston self-released the first Pink Mexico LP, pnik mxeico, in June of 2013, attracting the attention of Austin-based record label Fleeting Youth Records, who then re-released pnik mxeico the following December. 

Preston relocated to Brooklyn in the fall of 2014 to begin recording his next album while continuing other releases: a split 7" with Los Angeles-based band, SunLikeDrugs as well as a 12” vinyl pressing of pnik mxeico by Bordeaux, France based label Big Tomato Records. The underground buzz surrounding the first LP led Preston into the Burger Records family. Following countless Brooklyn shows and making the rounds at this year’s SXSW, Pink Mexico has grown as a band comprised of Grady Walker & Ian Everall.

Portland, Oregon’s Miss Rayon was started by Eric Sabatino as a solo recording project, but soon after putting the finishing touches on a three-song demo, Sabatino recruited bassist Jenny Logan and drummer Hannah Blilie to form a fully fledged trio. Between them, the members of Miss Rayon have done time in The Gossip, Summer Cannibals, Vexations and Deathlist, among others. Residing somewhere on the spectrum between New York no wave and UK post-punk, Miss Rayon’s sound is a squirrely and sidewinding thing. One can hear traces of Sonic Youth and Magazine in the band’s recordings, but there’s nothing nostalgic about Miss Rayon. This is music for a dark future in which dreams break into real life and dance parties descend into madness. Miss Rayon recently released a three song ep with a limited edition flexi disc vinyl, and are now working on a full length album.
