On the beach in front of the YAN-TEN Restaurant Bar, this three piece was playing. South of Cancun, in Playa Del Carmen - Zona Federal Maritima, C.P. 77710. The sound gravitated out across the sand, low and hovering in uneven patches of sea breeze from a distance. I liked everything about them: The lead singer mounted on his slit drum/thumb harp bass. The guitar player’s phase effect. The drummer’s vocal cries and fills. The matching shirts. Their set was extraordinary. As were the fish tacos and the sun.

See GUITAR SOLO at 1:55. Launched into, and teething on cerveza imbibed ears.
