Mannequin has ready two marvellous brand new releases for October.
MNQ 031 MUSHY – MY LIFE SO FAR 12” EP (OUT 15TH OCT)
Sublime synth wave. Mushy began her career crafting noise bursts and aggressive oblique instrumentals before, in her newest form, blooming
into a beautiful, epic and heart-heavy icy synth princess.
‘My Life So Far’ is the first taster for her new album ‘Breathless’ and it takes the blue print established on her debut album ‘Faded Heart’ –
album of the week at Rough Trade in 2011 – namely ghostly harmonies, glacial rhythm movements and beautifully waster vocals, and turns it all up to ten.
Sonically, the album is a wide-screen, incredible achievement, with legendary 4AD group A.R. KANE drafted in to help out with production and writing. ‘My Life So Far’ features an exclusive track not on ‘Breathless.’
You’re left feeling a melancholy sense of loss so sweet and delightful that you wish it to go deeper and longer.
MNQ 033 SOVIET SOVIET – SUMMER, JESUS LP (OUT 25TH OCT)
European tour edition. Solid red color vinyl release, limited to 300 copies.
