The guitar trio Mestizo consists of Evan Salvacion Levine/b, Matt Gold/g and Andrew Green/dr for some rockfish and bluesy moods. Gold’s tone has a bit of a rusty edge and a hint of country twang, riding the rails created by Green on “Age II’ and creating a hip canter for Gold’s spacious hues on “Highways” and getting busy on the undercurrent of the funky “Center of Gravity.” Levine chimes on the percussive “Little Shells” and the team gets delicate for “Opposing Forces” and reflective for “The Best Things Never Change.” Patient portraits.
