Now this is what breaking bad really sounds like. This afternoon, we’re super excited to be premiering a brand new track from Mushy entitled “Crystal Chemistry”. For quite some time, and especially after the release of her astounding LP Faded Heart early in 2011, Italy’s Valentina Mushy has captured our hearts as one of the best darkwave artists working today. Bringing gothic sounds back to a place of ingenuity, Mushy makes hypnotic music perfect for a rainy day like today.
Mushy has a 7” release coming out on Haute Magie later this year, and “Crystal Chemistry” is the B-side from that release. It definitely shows a new side to Mushy, eschewing any vocals beyond some deeply buried drawls, and showcasing an epic build complete with thrumming war drums. With it’s twisting, elliptical structure, you’ll have no trouble keeping “Crystal Chemistry” on repeat all day. The release, out on October 27th, is blood red vinyl, with double sided foldover jackets featuring artwork by Valentina. There’s also a vellum slipcover limited art print edition (first 50, only available from the label) with art also by Valentina.- Whole Milk
