New York “nervous soul” outfit Ava Luna took to Mississippi to create their latest record, Infinite House. Mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Sleater Kinney), this album captures the group’s frenetic sound while feeling more polished, thanks to Fridmann’s legendary touch.
Ava Luna joined forces in 2007 in Brooklyn, releasing EP after EP until they finally released their unbelievably well-received first LP, Ice Level, in 2012. Pitchfork described the record simply enough as “glorious.” They sought to combine the heartfelt sound of soul artists like Shuggie Otis with the more frantic, raw feel of late 70s/early 80s punk acts like Wire and The Raincoats. They succeeded.
Since 2007, they’ve performed with numerous artists: Toro Y Moi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Krill, Sharon Van Etten, and [Mr] Twin Sister, among many others, while completing 100+ shows in their own right (supporting Ice Level). There’s something poetic about having a talented young band on a meteoric rise join another talented band who are going out on top — whatever that means, we’re thrilled to have Ava Luna join the line-up for Pattern The Movement‘s farewell show!
