The season of “get out and go” is nearing its end; the time to take a step back and wonder what has passed and what is next is nigh. Here are some auditory fare to help ease in the existentialism. Take ’em in with a nice helping of solitude.

 

Turvy Organ – 98 West

Following their stunning debut LP, Turvy Organ have trudged through despair to find the calculated despondence of new EP Divv//ecto. It’s good to see they still couldn’t care less.

 

LIFER – Nightlife

Have you ever been in a one life stand? LIFER is asking the right questions in ‘Nightlife’. New EP out on Forged Artifacts 8|19.

 

St. Francis Hotel – Mondello

St. Francis Hotel‘s debut is a soft and weary lilt through a tenebrous technicolor trance.

 

Obliques – Cut Me Loose (Ill Feeling)

These funky soul cats are helping change the adage to: trust in your in Obliques.

 

Shakes – Strange Tides

Stuck in limbo, Shakes‘ ‘Strange Tides’ is all bits catchy indie-pop swept up in the undertow of the complications of romance.

 

NOVAA – Rose

All is never lost. Angel-voiced NOVAA‘s Japanese inspired chill reminds us that “we’re made of heaven we just didn’t know”. More on the way from her.

Aptly named London duo TENDER incite bedroom ardor simply and smoothly. A little dash of dysphoria via lyricism and drawn out synths and the deed is done.

 

TENDER – Armour

TENDER – Legion

Event Info

 

While the fourth generally means going big and spending bucks on big names, the MDA crew sees things a bit differently. For our Independence WAVS festivities, we’ll be bringing everything to you FREE of cover and cheaper at the counter. Beers, Wells, and Gourmet Links of America will be offered at $5 apiece.

 

Tunes will be provided by the MDA crew and local homies that we’ve met along the way: Daniel Minaya, Mogli, Tang (Wet Hand Dan & Bijoux), and Torosbros. Come celebrate a rather successful youth at the Wayfarer!

We’ve been waiting for Saint WKND to make his way stateside for over a year now. You could imagine our excitement when we saw him with June availability in the US. Since the release of his touching remix of James Vincent McMorrow, we’ve been closely admiring his development. It’s been quite the ride.

 

DJ Trust, Torosbros, and Daniel Minaya will provide support.

This Friday, we’re getting Aussie Indie-pop-funky to celebrate the start of Summer. The Nu-Disco sounds of Miami Horror will be a welcome end to this crazy week of weather. There’s nothing quite like vocals with indie-disco sounds to set us in the perfect mood for the sunny months to come. The homies Torosbros and Wet Hand Dan will be leading off.

 

Come hang and enjoy some warm spirits!

Miami Horror – THUMP Mix

So last year we posted about Galimatias saying that it was only a matter of time ’til he got his much deserved recognition. He got signed to Ultra Records and released his debut EP with them last week!!

 

His sound always manages to bring me back down to earth, but it could just be the combo of Alina’s incredibly soothing vocals. ‘Unfold’ was saved for the complete EP release, and it embodies everything I love about the pair working together. Check the single and EP below.
