When I wrote about Persona La Ave in 2012, I said, "Imagine if acid rain got in the exoskeletons of two Honda ASIMO robots and they tried to have sex and electrocuted each other." Still applies. On September 2nd, MJMJ will release Relation and Temptation, two funky EPs on one cassette and Persona La Ave's first tape since 2010. If I had to choose, "We Are" would be my highlight, opening with a tranquil intro that feels like bathing in a waterfall while victorious over something, then grows into a soul song caught in a wormhole. But the confluence of supreme vibes is par for the course. Preorder now for $4.20 (digital) or $6.66 (physical).
