Founded by Andrés Santo Domingo and Keith Abrahamsson in 2008, Mexican Summer is an independent record label that started out by releasing limited-edition, ornately packaged vinyl pieces. Mexican Summer has since expanded its catalog to over 100 releases across multiple formats.

The name is taken from the third track of the album "Songs III: Bird on the Water" by Marissa Nadler/b, which was released on Kemado Records in 2007.

In October 2009 Kemado Records and
Mexican Summer opened Co-Op 87, a destination brick-and-mortar record store in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with several other record labels, an idea label owner Andrés Santo Domingo called a "vinyl co-op store." They also built a commercial recording studio in the same location called Gary's Electric Studio.

In 2011, Mexican Summer and Kemado Records introduced a new subsidiary label called Software Recording Co. It is run by Daniel Lopatin, who records under the name Oneohtrix Point Never and whose collaborative album with Joel Ford, "Channel Pressure", served as the label's inaugural release. Software Recording Co. focuses mostly on experimental electronic and dance music.

One of Mexican Summer's biggest successes was 2010's release of "Crazy For You" by Best Coast which has sold over 100,000 copies, more than 17,000 of which were LPs.

In 2014 Mexican Summer relaunched Anthology Recordings as its reissue imprint, serving vinyl and formats unforeseen. Without limitation to genre, Anthology Recordings works to elevate the reissue practice through responsibly sourced material, compelling design, and high-quality packaging.
