Miguel Mendez Unveils New Video For ‘Yr Dealer’
Miguel Mendez has been a member of Love As Laughter, and collaborated with musicians such a J Mascis, Farmer Dave of Beachwood Sparks, Joel Jerome of DIOS, and even experimental musicians like Brian Kinsman of True Neutral Crew.
On rare occasion though, Mendez puts forth his own work – a uniquely rude yet gentle form of psyche-country. Raised on both 70s ballads and 90s gangsta rap, Miguel Mendez is at once deeply romantic and armed with a bitter tongue. It can be hard to decipher if his lyrics are sympathetic or satirical. Or both. Or neither.
He plays with mystery both in his words and the lush orchestration of his tracks. ‘Love Is For The Rich’ is an ominously delivered piece of wisdom: Just chill.
Directed by Signor Benedick The Moor, Brian Kinsman, and Miguel Mendez.
‘Love is For The Rich’ comes out on Deathbomb Arc / Psychedelic Thriftstore via CD/Digital on Oct 7th. The first single/video is for “Yr Dealer”.
