Kevin Drew – “Mexican Aftershow Party”

By Miles Bowe / February 24, 2014

Just as “Good Sex” began with a sound that was sweeping and intimate at the same time, the new single from Broken Social Scene frontman Kevin Drew’s upcoming album works in a similar vein. Carried by its heavy but steady-paced drums and ambient electronic washes, “Mexican Aftershow Party” trades a single big melodic line for countless little sonic details, electronic touches, and glittering sounds. As Drew weaves together this dreamy party scene, the song absolutely sparkles from all the textures, drawing you in with the first listen, but begging for more after that. Listen below.
