"direct, dark and complex avant rock... a really, really massive and genuinely exciting sound. Fast-paced, hectic and elegantly wild" -NeuGuitars

* Solo LP split with Sir Richard Bishop, Ivory Tower, available on German label Unrock
Available HERE in the US, or HERE in Europe

“The thunderous fuzzy freeform tracks on Ava Mendoza’s side of Ivory Tower make a well paired contrast with Bishop, utilising the guitar as an outright noise producer before nimbly segueing into a fiery version of Mendoza’s own vocal blues tune “Shadowtrapping,” and eventually into the swinging fuzz jazz instrumental 'Kiss of Fire'.” -The Wire

"Miss Mendoza is wild at heart... thunderous eruptive, twisted improvisations and perfect songs." -Unrock

* Feature in Premier Guitar magazine, Ava Mendoza: From Trad to Rad
