The Mystery Lights release their self-titled debut album this Friday (6/24) via new Daptone imprint Wick Records. (Pre-order yours.) Recorded at Daptone’s House of Soul studio, they’ve managed to capture the band’s wild energy (and Mike Brandon’s impassioned vocals) on tape, and with a great batch of songs (“Too May Girls,” “Too Tough to Bear,” “Follow Me Home” in particular) it a humdinger of a debut. Garage-psych bands may be a dime a dozen, but The Mystery Lights prove themselves worthy NYC successors to the likes of The Fleshtones, as this LP shows. A stream of the whole album premieres in this post and you can stream it below.

The band will celebrate the release of their album in NYC this Friday at Mercury Lounge with PMS & the Mood Swings, and Barbed Wire (tickets). The band will also play a free in-store at Rough Trade on Saturday (6/25) at 2 PM. Fans who purchase the album that day will receive a free flexi-disc featuring “Follow Me Home,” and the band will be doing an album signing after the performance.

The Mystery Lights also play the free Festival of Independence on July 4 at South Street Seaport with Woods, The Lemon Twigs, Lee Fields & the Expressions and more. The band will be on tour with The Night Beats this summer — all dates are listed below.
