Mating Ritual comes out of the dark in "I Wear Glasses"

Mating Ritual is the project of Ryan Marshall Lawson, a songwriter whose aiming for a new wave-inspired sound that's both immediate and evocative. His latest single, "I Wear Glasses", pushes forward a danceable melody with its delectable glittering synths and spindly guitar lines. Lawson's ability to write singles that instantly grab your attention proves his days as a recluse inside a cave in the Valley, as he once stated, are numbered.

The Mynabirds new album Lovers Know Release 8.07

The Mynabirds' third album Lovers Know is set for a summer release, and it's a miles away from what you'd expect of singer/multi-instrumentalist Laura Burhenn. Seven years out from her indie pop stint as Georgie James, Burhenn's newest art rock exploration, Lovers Know, melds her love for '60s psych with the found stylings of her musical sojourn.

Her first step as The Mynabirds carried the spirit of her 2004 debut: 2010's What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood was a hearty bite of lyricism and melody, carefully propped by acousmatic flakes. Two years after, the sophomore GENERALS mixed Arcade Fire/Vampire Weekend textures and rhythms with 80's synth soundscapes. Now, the songs of Lovers Know effortlessly weave pop truths through all-manner of effects, with a strong affection for brisk percussion and yesteryear frequencies.

Lovers Know will be out August 7th on Saddle Creek Records — get a first-listen on NPR Music and pre-order your copy now. Burhenn and the gang are playing a free show at the Santa Monica Pier with Ariel Pink on August 20th, too. - Ryan Mo

NYC/LA electronic duo Collapsing Scenery hosts art event for 'Metaphysical Cops' video: LA, 07.31

Collapsing Scenery's musical comfort zone can be found somewhere between the barriers that separate sound and image. And they've been sharing that creative vision with their home cities of New York and LA through a series of eventful art installations. The faces behind this electronic act and multimedia project are Don De Vore of Sick Feeling and Reggie Debris, and their collaboration has transformed into something more than just music. They debuted the video installation in NYC this past May, in time with the public release of the video (check it out below), and this Friday they'll be taking it to Los Angeles. The music video is just a sample of the aesthetics behind the installation, pairing their raucous electro track "Metaphysical Cops," with dark and ethereal images of nature, kaleidoscopic cityscapes and historic war footage in neon. Expect an artistically experimental night of immersive environments, video projections, and live music at the event this Friday (8pm at the Dilettante), and look out for Collapsing Scenery's full length debut album coming later this year. - Sam O'Hara

MXMS reveal new single "Anna", play House of Blues on 7.30

Dark wave-leaning MXMS are skillfully blurring the line between brooding atmosphere and chart accesibility. Singer Ariel Levitan croons with a lazy drawl reminiscent of Lana del Rey as Jeremy Dawson steadily plays the keys on their recent single "Rx", which adopts a new age sensibility without ceasing to explore the heart's dark corners. Even the name of the track alludes to industrial veterans Skinny Puppy, though even if the similarities aren't as obvious there's still a good chance the duo does has a deep appreciation for gothic poetry. Now they've released another curveball in the form of "Anna", a breathy pop track that rumbles with an ominous and eerie feel that truly gets under your skin. The duo find meaning in just the littlest details - how Dawson will raise the tension by slightly changing the course of the track with a soft, intoxicating key stroke to temper Levitan's threatening, yet seductive voice. 

The single compliments their recently released OMG / RX split 7", which is now available via Grand Jury. And make sure to catch them play at House of Blues Anaheim on July 30 before they embark on a small-scale tour that covers most U.S. major cities. - Juan Rodríguez
