MV & EE in a Brooklyn church in 2009 (more by Nathan Miller)
MV & EE, the psychedelic project led by the duo of Matt Valentine and Erika Elder but often featuring multiple collaborators (past contributors include J. Mascis, members of Chelsea Light Moving, and more), recently returned with a new album, Shade Grown. For this album, they recorded with their longtime backing band The Golden Road, and you can get a taste of it by streaming the single, "Cocola Parabola (Sugar On Snow)," a jammy trip through droning atmospheres and psych-rock guitar noodling, below.
This month, MV & EE are playing their first Northeast shows in support of the album. They just played Northampton, MA last night (2/16), and tonight (2/17) they kick off their "Aquarian Shade" residency in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right. The residency has them playing two sets each night with special guests a both. They do it again the next Monday (2/24), and both shows are totally FREE. They also specify tapers are welcome.
