My Dear Disco
Listen to My Dear Disco- White Lies
Emerging from the Ann Arbor suburb of Detroit, My Dear Disco has been cutting a path throughout the Midwest with its addictive self-branded style of “danethink” music which displays influences from Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder to Daft Punk and Tom Waits. The band has kept busy in the studio as well, recently producing remixes of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” and Franz Ferdinand’s “Ulysses” that incorporate the band’s live instrumentation into each tune’s original tracks.
Known for its distinctive, “Dancethink Music,” My Dear Disco’s debut album Dancethink LP has met with much critical acclaim since its release and the band’s unique sound and style has begun to make waves nationwide. The album features mixes by Grammy-nominated engineer Mark Saunders and his multi-platinum record generating studio in New York, the same people responsible for the sound of Shiny Toy Guns’ We Are Pilots, Tricky’s Maxinquaye, David Byrne’s Feelings, and The Cure’s Wish. Additionally, the band’s high energy, inventive live shows have been generating hard-fought praise all their own.
In 2008, My Dear Disco was named one of the most promising bands in the country by American Eagle’s “New Music Union” and was invited to perform at the American Eagle Summer Festival, curated by Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers. This resulted in a fully-stocked summer 2008 festival schedule where the band performed alongside artists such as Lotus, Moe, Buckethead, and Bela Fleck. My Dear Disco continues on the road and will hit the festival circuit once again in the summer of 2009, in full-flight, following its “Dancethink Music,” wherever it takes them.
