New Music From The Inbox: MTNS, Max Elto, Moist, The Velvet Ants, Lucius

By Juliette Jagger

Artist: MTNS “Salvage”
Salvage EP
This band has the incredible ability to take the simplest of human emotions and build them up into these blissful, cascading moments of release.

Sounds like: “So put your feet back on the ground and just start walkin’…”

Artist: Max Elto “Shadow of The Sun”
Taped Rai EP
This is the latest from Sweedish duo Max Elto whose icy brand of slow-burning electro has garnered them much attention this past year.

Sounds like: Think the perpetual stillness of The xx colliding with classic Swedish electronic appeal.

Artist: Moist “World’s Collide” (Dicky Continental Remix)
Drawing inspiration from the likes of, Sigur Ros, Dive, Björk and Massive Attack, Swedish electronica artist Moist has become known for his rich, timeless production and ability to capture a vocalist’s soul content within a melody.

This remix from Dicky Continental (alias of Rich Thair from Red Snapper), takes all of those qualities to a whole new level.

Sounds like: This is a ride – One that is wrapped up in longing and meant to be felt with your whole body.

Artist: The Velvet Aunts “Cardigan’s Fable”

This is a great song ­– it’s distant and yet familiar enough to get lost in.

Sounds like:  “Buried in the pilgrims age…”

Artist: Lucius “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)”
Cover of John Lennon & Yoko Ono

Brooklyn band Lucius recently played a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Check out this incredible moment captured by someone in the crowd.

Sounds like: Major goosebumps. What a moment.
