Mexican Summer Will Release Quilt's Sophomore Album 'Held In Splendor' On 17th February 2014

Mexican Summer are pleased to share "Tie Up The Tides", a beautifully wrought piece of psych-pop songcraft from Boston-based three piece Quilt. Mexican Summer will release Quilt's forthcoming album "Held In Splendor" on 17th February, 2014.

Since the release of their 2011 self-titled debut on Mexican Summer, Quilt have become more than kids just out of college; they've become a bona fide hard-touring band, with stories to share from the road and experiences to distill into the narrative of new music. Though they continued to write and arrange tunes together (always an essential part of Quilt's creative process) this time around they also brought songs to one another, making and modifying demo tapes for the first time. No longer rookies, Quilt began to approach their music like a lifeline.

'Held in Splendor' is an audacious pop-rock record with cascading harmonies and billowing textures, punchy rhythms and snarled guitars, wonderful depth and resplendent peaks. 'Mary Mountain' takes hazy Summer of Love memories on a mid-summer road trip in a gleaming muscle car. 'Tired & Buttered' invites Booker T over for an energy-addled jam in the garage. 'The Hollow' twinkles likeFleetwood Mac and Galaxie 500, with sweet singing backed by the lap steel sighs of young acoustic guitar star and longtime Quilt palDaniel Bachman. 'Held in Splendor' is an album of personal poetry and public questions, confessions and aspirations-really, these 13 tracks are their own playground, brimming with the sort of unapologetic energy and wonder that turns simple songs into absolute anthems. 

"We're really attracted to records where each song has its own voice. We wanted to focus on what each song had to say," Butler explains. "Having the studio, demoing the songs and knowing each other better as musicians helped make that happen. That was a really exciting process for us."
