A new supergroup has seen the light of day: Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone), John Mark Lapham (Earlies), Alex Maas (Black Angels) and Tom Furse (The Horrors) have formed MIEN.
So to say it at the beginning: the records sounds exactly how you expect it to sound – like a mix of all those bands mentioned earlier. But on the other hand it sounds totally new, refreshing, like something that you have not necessarily heard before. The 10 track LP connects Kraut-, Noise & Spacerock, electronic sounds / drum computers, sitars and heavy echoing; it is dark, it is gloomy. Though it might not be everyone’s taste there is a lot to discover. Listen to it on a good stereo, turn it up to hear all the musical spheres!
Best tracks include ‘Earth Moon’, ‘Hocus Pocus’ and ‘Ropes’.
