June 3, 2016 Mexican Summer

Medicine, the closing track from Pill’s debut Mexican Summer album Convenience, showcases an impassioned rationale for the resistance of control and the value of spiritual love by the group’s frontwoman and bassist Veronica Torres. Amidst the swarming interplay of raked guitar strings and throbbing bass, Ben Jaffe’s melodic saxophone leads weave through the fray like a bicyclist cutting through rush hour gridlock, as Veronica feels out false hopes (“the war is over!”) and relies on her own wisdom (Medicine/take it tomorrow) in its place. The song cools down Convenience like a night breeze in the twilight hour of an urban cauldron.
