LISTEN — Dana Buoy’s “Twisted Sky”

November 15th, 2017

Dana Buoy, aka Akron/Family member Dana Janssen, is finally set to release a new album, Ice Glitter Gold, on February 23 via Everloving. Dana made the album with longtime collaborator Justin Miller, and Dana co-produced it with John Morgan Askew and Abe Seiferth.

The first single, “Twisted Sky,” which Dana says “is a song about the moods we trust when we fumble our understandings of the seemingly obvious. A celebration of distorted realities ensnared by positive vibration forces.” It’s also cut from the same cloth as Dana Buoy and Akron/Family’s percussive freak folk/psych pop/whatever and if you’re a fan of the earlier stuff, you’re probably gonna instantly dig this too.

WATCH — The Mynabirds’ NPR Tiny Desk Concert

November 14th, 2017


“For Laura Burhenn, 2016 was a tough year and she wasn’t alone. We lost David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince (and so many more beloved artists). And then there were the elections and subsequent inauguration, which were devastating to many. But what transpired next for anyone dismayed by those events was inspiring: The Women’s March united many who were in despair, while giving purpose and focus to what for them was an unthinkable outcome in the election of Donald Trump.

Then came the songs – nine new ones Laura wrote with Patrick Damphier, inspired by the many marches around the country, listening to the news, seeing social media, talking to friends and taking it all in. The result is The Mynabirds‘ politically charged 2017 album Be Here Now.”
