Look Mexico will release their sophomore album To Bed To Battle March 23, 2010 on Suburban Home Records.
To Bed To Battle was written and recorded this past summer in Look Mexico’s former hometown of Tallahassee, FL. With the converted basement of a local pizza shop dedicated as their studio space, the band was able to take their time throughout the recording process, experimenting with and expanding their sound, and adding new instrumentation such as electric piano, organ, pedal steel, violin, cello, and horns.

1. You Stay. I Go. No Following.
2. No Wonder I’m Still Awake
