Track Premiere: Casa Lagarto – Time’s Up


We’re excited to premiere the newest track “Time’s Up” from local mirage-rock outfit Casa Lagarto. The song is their first release since their 2018 album Shed It, and represents an overall shift in the band’s approach whereby they renew focus on creating space and depth within their music. It is also the first single off their upcoming LP which is yet to be named.

“To me this song resembles an orchestrated theatrical piece,” says drummer Arturo Portocarrero. “One part transcends into the the next—the space and depth on this new album has been brought up to a new level. We dove into experimenting with vast amounts of synthesizers.

Casa Lagarto is known for its brooding, desert-driven songs. The group expands on the dusty, haunting sound that the group is known for by integrating jangly guitar riffs with unfettered grooves and a baritone vocal onslaught by Jonny Yuma.

“The tune is a haunting exploration of the fragility of time and count down towards exploring what lies behind the ‘mystery of door #2,” explains Yuma.

The full LP will have 9 songs, and the band plans on releasing two more singles over the winter before dropping the full album in spring 2020.

Listen to the track on YouTube or Spotify below. Don’t miss the band play some new tunes across the river at Minotaure Saturday night with Jesse Mac Cormack and Black Legary. Tickets available here.
