Since I have yet to find a great rock Mexican album this year, I’m Jumping from one MySpace to another to see if I catch something, it can be suffocating, but this practice has proven to work in discovering new bands worthy to write about. Yesterday I came across Mediocres, a band from Torreon, Coahuila. I can’t seem to point out exactly why they standout, there’s something mysterious about them, it might be that they sound like early Bloc Party or even Becker, one of Mexico’s most intriguing new bands and whose second LP should arrive in a few months. Mediocres have several songs available for download at LastFM, they’re calling it their EP, but I can’t tolerate LastFM’s player or having to download each individual track, putting them on a folder, and without artwork. While I wait for them to release their EP properly and make clear sense of it, I must say I’m loving their track “Una Tarde”, taste it!


  1. "Since I have yet to find a great rock Mexican album this year"

    And where do you think Juan Son is from exactly??

  2. I think Mermaid Sashimi is very pop, or alternative, but doesn't really fit into rock ... or at least not into 'our rock'

    The best mexican rock album so far is probably the Rompevientos EP by Nos Llamamos, but still isn't a GREAT album (not in the 80s).

    Btw, one of these guys looks like he is dancing PERREO!

    I liked this song.

  3. and makes me want to go and download Becker since for some reason I don't have it on my ipod. I LOVED songs like "Lejos", "Para Siempre" and "Cerca"

  4. i think one of the best albums is Judas from the band called Disidente, and the band of suave as hell have a really good album, the band le butcherettes is another good band and in Torreón i guesss mediocres is really awsome ... but they are people from space, people says that the singer is an UFO´s experiment with an asian woman ... LOL. hey no te creas amigo hahaha.
    mediocres is a very considerable band for the mexican indie rock (well, today i don´t really know waht is "indie"). mediocres is "chinese pop" :P

  5. rock is dead. becker should be dead to.
