The Night Was Young Enough

19 September 2012

When someone stands alone like Russ Manning is right now it’s hard to get everyone’s pens out, especially when the level and number of releases each day grows exponentially. Luckily enough for Rush Midnight, George Lewis Jr. (aka Twin Shadow) is not only his former band leader, but a friend and a producer who lends him some of his buzz power for a promising start.

With an imminent release of his debut EP, “+1” on Cascine by the end of next month Rush Midnight is accelerating his single-release calendar (a clip for You and I a couple of weeks ago) and mini-American tour set to start @ Brooklyn’s Cameo Gallery by the end of the month.

These Swedish are driving us insane with their atmospheric & millimetric modular voices mastering the philosophy of music. World Tour are the latest addition to the Cascine family (you know… the smaller brother of the well-known Service house)…
