MIEN – S/T
If the new APTBS album isn’t enough dark, hazy psych for you, the debut album from supergroup MIEN should do the trick. Featuring The Black Angels’ Alex Maas, The Horrors’ Tom Furse, Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir and The Earlies’ John-Mark Lapham. Made by four strong personalities — albeit mostly via the internet — you might think it would make for a disjointed record, but this record holds together well, and doesn’t really sound like any of the members respective bands. “Earth Moon,” krautrock groovin’ “Black Habit” and the claustrophobic “You Dreamt” stick with you, though MIEN are more about the mood than the melody.
