Los Angeles based Mighty Six Ninety only released one album, "Cheers to the bitter end" in 2008. It was followed by the "Mistakes like these" EP the same year, the track "Mistakes like these" is included on this full length album and is also one of the highlights along with "Regardless" and "Unknown". This band takes the listener back to 80´s Britpop a la The Cure, Echo and The Bunnymen and New Order. They do it well and the sound is very retro, well performed songs and there are moments when my thoughts go to another band that producer Tommy Henriksen worked with in 2006, namely Clear Static.
A solid album worth checking out if you´re into The Cure-like new wave.
