Mexican experimental quintet, Porter, knows how to construct a vanguard soundscape that embraces their ancestral roots in modern context. If you are a fan of psychedelia/chillwave, Porter combines both, but conveys their own hypnotic twist of edgier, starry-eyed vibe. Dose “Palapa”

The five dudefest dropped by The Echoplex (Los Angeles) yesterday for their Moctezuma tour and we saw them live since it fitted our peasant budget. Porter’s live sound is a riveting, buoyant experience that braids the sharpness of experimental rock with the dreamy/mystic-oriented aura of synthwave. Underneath the electro layers, there’s a rich cultural deposit of indigenous roots and existentialism that places past themes in contemporary lens. The high pitch and crooning vocals elevate the compelling mystery that permeates the avant-garde Porterland. We took snaps of our time in Porterland last night, so check ‘em out:
