Superhumanoids (Album Release) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Superhumanoids (Album Release)
In the summer of 2010, Superhumanoids was birthed under the hazy air and bright blue skies of Los Angeles. A fascination for electronic sounds, instruments, pedals, and more, aesthetically united Max, Sarah, and Cameron. Like a petri dish growing each day, the band spent their time together intertwining and experimenting with their R&B upbringings and love for pop music. Bartered studio time, extensive touring, and the release of two EPs set the stage for what was to come and in the fall of 2011 these forces coalesced to create Exhibitionists.

Exhibitionists is the soundtrack to the last moments of dusk in LA. With swooning guitars, glimmering air, soaring melodies, the setting sun, and melting keyboards, something about the whole thing makes your breath stop short. Developed in the home studios of the Superhumanoids, the record takes a completely hands on approach from the trio. With each synth and guitar sound being completely made from scratch, the record brings a homegrown feel that encapsulates the thumps of the beating heart and lulls of swaying palm fronds from LA. And just as the record takes those elements and brings them to life, the live performance of Exhibitionists only continues to further that distinction. Despite being wrapped in an electronic blanket, the trio unravels each songs core to take the listener on a journey that highlights the living R&B undertones and driving groove that brings to light the soul of the record. What is found in the sticky air of the city of angels is found here in Exhibitionists, to ease between the spaces of your body, make you dance, and bring you home.

Mister Goodnite
The suave sounds of Mister Goodnite comes courtesy of Mini Mansions‘ Tyler Parkford. He calls Mister Goodnite “a side-project where I construct original lo-fi pop songs by singing over old psych records and soul cuts.” His new effort, ”You’re Too Cool”, evokes symphonic bliss; it sits somewhere between the brass-tinged nostalgia of Philly soul and recent psych-pop explorations in the vein of Ariel Pink and Mayer Hawthorne. Parkford has an airy youthful enunciation in his voice, perfect for the gleeful psych and soul interpretations he crafts. His melodic wizardry was already apparent with Mini Mansions, but Mister Goodnite is a whole different breed.
