Video of The Day: MIEN
There are super groups, and there are super groups. With MIEN, the emphasis is most assuredly on super. This foursome features some psych heavyweights, with Alex Maas (The Black Angels), Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone), Tom Furse (The Horrors), and John-Mark Lapham (The Earlies) putting their heads together to collectively make some wonderfully quixotic and seriously exciting noise.
"Black Habit" is the first release from this force, and it's some sort of black magic messiness. The video makes use of some black light, body paint, and curious closeups to the effect of dizzying disorientation. "Black Habit" is a hell of a statement of intent, and I can't wait to see what else lurks on the MIEN debut record.
