"Amy Mendoza, originally from Bakersfield but based nowadays in Tucson, fits this description to a “T,” additionally serving up a measure of swagger and sensuality to the table that is nigh-on irresistible. On Suicide On the AM Dial she marshals her musicians—she on guitar/bass/vocals, Damon Barnaby on lead guitar and E.E. Mendoza on drums, plus a number of talented Old Pueblo guests, among them keyboardist Duncan Stitt, violinist Heather Hardy, guitarist Rich Hopkins and Hopkins’ wife Lisa Novak—for 11 songs’ worth of sun-kissed reverie.
