Warm Speakers: Mezcal Noon EP


Mezcal Noon is the debut EP from Long Island artist Warm Speakers, aka Patrick Berlinquette. So right off, I know this makes two chillwave reviews in a row, but the new Neon Indian, Toro y Moi and Washed Out have me mezmerised, so please bare with me. That said, the Mezcal Noon EP stands on its own as a great record. The synth work is terrific and the vocals are balanced, airy and stand out as leads rather than after thoughts. The five tracks are a sultry mix of minimalist beats and hints of Philly era R&B. Warm Speakers finds his own unique twist on the genre. Stream and buy the Mezcal Noon EP at the link below.
