HOTEL MEXICO – Dear Les Friends
Japanese music isn’t quite as popular over here on our British, western shores. I think we primarily see Japan as a musical provider of such travesties as J-Pop and leave it be….
Today, however, is a new day where you learn that our friends in the East have far more to offer. Hotel Mexico are a Japanese band who summon up surprisingly psychadelic refrains and riffs that churn up summertime sentiment amidst all the glittering and shimmer (along with high pitched vocals that make it very difficult to understand, even when it’s in another language).
