Rissa Garcia splits 90s house and modern grooves, plays Elsewhere 8.10

New York DJ and label boss Rissa Garcia knows how to strike the right chord between heavy nostalgia and classic sounds. Her recent drop “Baby I Can Feel It” demonstrates this aptitude, interpolating 90s piano house with more contemporary synthetic and percussive accents. It endows “Baby” with a feeling that’s as nostalgic as it is danceable, employing a vintage aesthetic that never feels derivative or pandering; rather, “Baby I Can Feel It” shows Garcia’s ability to recognize the electronic textures that are timeless, and utilize them in novel, groovy ways. Stream this bop below, and catch Rissa Garcia at Elsewhere on August 10th alongside Classixx, Young Franco, and Alejandra Sabillon. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Maybird's Colorful Visions on Their Debut, Things I Remember From Earth

Maybird's musical vision is made for a future that relies on pulling from the past. Toy-sounding synthesizers, acoustic guitars plus distorted and processed guitars, and the chorus-like harmonies that make their music sound a bit like it's from a retro movie give the band cinematic flair. The band has a taste for writing truisms, and perhaps their nostalgic sound adds to the emphasis. The story behind their debut album, Things I Remember From Earth cuts to the core of the human experience in terms of what people are searching for and come to find self-evident. The journey to writing the album comes from Kurt Vonnegut's The Sirens of Titan as a crucial source for inspiration. The philosophical themes surely inform the thoughtful hooks, which sometimes admonish looking too far into the future. 

A key influence behind Maybird is the reputable rock band Dangermouse, who helped them release the EP Turning into Water after discovering them in 2016. The four-song EP Unraveling followed soon after in 2017 with the help of producer Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. The clash and eventual concoction of these experiences resulted in the songs on their debut, all of which are tinged with the right amount of apathy that ultimately makes their music so cool.
