Mirror Travel: music review

mirror-travel_cover

Austin, Texas trio Mirror Travel is comprised of: Tiffanie Lanmon (drums), Paul Brinkley (bass/vocals) and Lauren Green (guitar/vocals). Power and respect to this band for being 2/3 female. That’s rarely seen these days. The band recorded Mexico at Marfa Recording Studios in Marfa, Texas. Have you heard about Marfa and the Marfa lights in the desert? That’s a bold choice with all the strange phenomena surrounding Marfa. It surely added something to the unusual atmospheric and dreamscape sound of the band. While Mirror Travel opens with the dreamy, escapist instrumental “Sand,” the core of their songs fall into that fuzzy, gritty garage band sound reminiscent of 90s female-fronted bands like Velocity Girl or that dog. They add their own edginess to modernize the songs. Lauren Green’s vocals simultaneously exude heartache and perception. Touches of gray. A thing of beauty. “Parties” churns with raging riffs and Green’s raspy astute observations. Cool tempo provides moodiness to “Uncharted Waters.” This is a band to watch. Check out the new album and catch them on their fall tour.
