"There's a cute pop song buried in the center of these belching keyboards, distorted drums, and screeching guitars. This song is probably about selling your organs, but I keep coming back to the sound of the thing, the way all the tinny instruments come together on a melody an organ grinder might have liked. Meho Plaza are a trio from L.A. and they've just released their self-titled full-length debut; if it does well enough, maybe they can all look forward to going through life with two kidneys." - Pitchfork FORKCAST
"This is what independent music is supposed to sound like.  Angular, jerked-out, completely infused with melody and anti-melody...The trio are truly an act you should be following daily and complement other scene revisionists like No Age and Health with ease."
- The Culture Of Me
"Go ahead and add noisy, frenetic, underground-rock bands to the list of things that define Los Angeles...With its self-titled full-length, Meho Plaza seems set to take its place next to No Age and HEALTH in a lineage that stretches back to older touchstones like the Minutemen and Fear." - Prefix Magazine
"Let's Play Police' and 'I Sold My Organs' will have you reliving your days of Daydream Nation with all their angular psyche-pop bliss." - LA-Underground.net
"The local electro-punk trio earned its share of love for its buzzing, energetic yet oddly dreamy approach to synthesized minimalism.  Live, it's even more of a rush." - Los Angeles Times
"Each dose of Meho Plaza's quirky, hooky electro-punk takes care of business..." - 3Hive

After gaining a devoted underground following due to the success of their sold-out, limited-edition EPs, Meho Plaza is set to bring their experimental, herky-jerky, synth-driven pop to Better Looking Records (The Electric Soft Parade, Tristeza, The Jealous Sound, etc). With hypnotic, angular guitar riffs competing against fuzzy, warm casios, their first self-titled full-length album is often simultaneously reminiscent of Brainiac and early Sonic Youth.

Meho Plaza consists of keyboardist, Jennifer Hwang, singer/guitarist Mike Thrasher and drummer James Connelly. Their stripped down live performance has earned them significant critical praise; The Los Angeles Times has called the experience a "rush" and further described their unique sound as an "energetic yet oddly dreamy approach to synthesized minimalism.

The Los Angeles CityBeat aptly called "The Beach," a song initially included on the band's EP, "quirkily specific without being pointlessly obscure," demonstrating the band's off-the-beaten path approach to combining raw edges with smooth lyrics and melodies.  Pitchfork included the track on the Infinite Mixtape Series (now known as the Forkast), the popular music site's compilation of "only the very best of [their] favorite new tracks."

Additionally, the new album features highlights "Let's Play Police" and "I Sold My Organs," tracks which LA-Underground promises "will have you reliving your days of Daydream Nation with all their angular psych-pop bliss."
