In December Turista Libre teamed up with local promoters All My Friends for a posada (aka an Xmas party of full-fledged Mexican proportions) starring NYC indie cariños Beach Fossils, plus Tijuana bands Ibi Ego, Jablonsky and Inkjet and San Diego's Tropical Popsicle. Full-fledged Mexican proportions included tamales, buñuelos (colloquial seasonal doughnuts so to speak), hot punch and, of course, piñatas.
"Beach Fossils aren't merely trying to evoke the feeling of sand between your toes," gushes Pitchfork of the band's 2010 self-titled full-length debut. "And even if you think you've mentally checked out of anything summery and lo-fi, this is a wonderful record."
