This scrappy iPhone video doesn't do it justice, but this new song Ava Luna played at Middlesex last night is too insanely excellent to not post. On a Phoenix-presented bill last night between locals Emily Reo and Arvid Noe, the Brooklyn band played with a different rhythm than usual. To start, Ava Luna now plays as a 5-piece; formerly, they were six.
Next up in our recent string of awesome "Phoenix Presents" shows is this Sunday at the Middlesex with Emily Reo, Arvid Noe, and Ava Luna. Details above. Download songs by all artists on the bill, below. Emily Reo is new to Allston, but has been playing music for years. Her enlightened dream-pop is a staple amongst the socially-conscious arts collective FMLY; her ethereal voice and enveloping electronics are especially mesmerizing live.
