Download a free remix EP from Mock Suns (opening for Hey Marseilles at Johnny Brenda’s on 3/27)
Philly alt-psych trio Mock Suns are venturing out of the studio this week to play Johnny Brenda’s on Wednesday, opening for buzzing Seattle band Hey Marseilles. The band released its debut LP Here Nor There last April – and, you might recall, hid a bunch of milk chocolate face casts around the city last Easter. Earlier this month, they followed that mischief up with an alluring EP of deconstructed remixes. While the album kept the band’s songwriting contained in tight pop-song nuggets, these various re-versions feel like the wall has been knocked down and is being completely reassembled – from jagged guitar-noise freakouts to electropop pitterpatterings that recall Thom Yorke and his various post-“Idiotheque” fixations. Listen to it below, get your free download at Bandcamp and get more information on Wednesday’s show at the WXPN Concert Calendar.
