The LA-via-DC group first caught my attention through their consistently great stream of free releases on Soundcloud, each one wildly different from the last, but always super catchy.
This week they released their first full length, “Superstitions“.
It finds Misun gliding between rock, pop, and electronic sounds. Powerhouse lead singer (and group namesake) Misun …

Museum-Of-Love-

While James Murphy was the heart, soul, and face of LCD Soundsystem, drummer Pat Mahoney was it’s backbone.
