“Landing somewhere between My Bloody Valentine’s poppiest moments, Wavves’s 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

Written in windowless 10×10 rooms from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, fueled by hangovers, coffee, and cigarettes, Pink Mexico is ready to unleash their Burger Records debut LP, fool, to the world. fool is streaming in full, in all its scuzzy, lo-fi glory, via Noisey now. The album will be available for purchase via Burger Records, Big Tomato Records, and all DSPs June 24. The Pink Mexico brand of garage-punk sound is coated in a layer of sludge and verges from crunchy to poppy. The rare combination of versatility and consistency fool exhibits establishes Pink Mexico as a worthy equivalent to bands such as Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall(and all associated projects), and Wavves.
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, yet kept it rough around the edges: the perfect blend for a sophomore LP.
fool will be released on June 24 via Burger Records, followed by a hometown release show atShea Stadium in Brooklyn on June 25 with support from fellow local bands Sharkmuffin,IYEZ, and Chillemi. Can’t wait? Check them out at the Burger Beach Bash NYC Pre-Partytonight, 6/17, at Berlin NYC.
