Taking Solos


Hey, folks. Hope you’re enjoying this HEAT! We’re sweating it out, gearing up for a really special weekend with two parties in two cities – one in London and one right here in New York Citay.

Eamon’s manning Mister Sunday in London, and Justin’s playing the home turf solo for the first time all summer. We’ve just posted a six-hour mix from Justin as a taste. Everything from contemporary Swedish rock supergroups to roots reggae to jump blues to big room techno is within.

We filled to capacity this past Sunday in Brooklyn, so it’s a good idea to get tickets if you’re coming. Tickets for the London Mister Sunday are a good idea, too. All our London parties have sold out over the past year.

Otherwise, Eamon’s playing some Ireland parties with our friend JG Wilkes from Optimo this weekend, and we’ve just confirmed the first Mister Saturday Night in a long time. Eamon and Justin will be joined by Gunnar Haslam for that one. Basic info is on the right. (Tickets for the Saturday will be coming soon.)

That’s all for now. Stay cool, and we hope to see you Sunday at Industry City or Oval Space!

Archie and Ludd Return


UPDATE: The record pressing gods have frowned upon us! Looks like we’ll have the records will now make their way to stores in the second week of August. We’re told they’re imminent, though!

Since we started the label, every record (except for our two early Anthony Naples releases) has been from a different artist. This year we’re planning to release music from some artists we’ve already featured, and we’re starting that push with General Ludd and Archie Pelago. Both of their releases are coming out this Friday. (We hope. Check below for a note about pressing plant delays.)

The first, which you can preview above, is from Archie Pelago, who did the second Mister Saturday Night Records release. They’re a trio made up of a cellist, trumpet player and saxophonist; and all of them works the knobs. The A Side, Clammy Customer, takes dozens of twists and turns, weaving in vocals by the always excellent Gabriel Garzon-Montano; and the B Side, Madame Suede Nightshade, was apparently made with us in mind (check the initials). Both sides are tried and tested on our dancefloor and cut at 45rpm for maximum oomph.

The second, which you can preview below, is by General Ludd, a pair of guys based in Glasgow (though one is originally from New Jersey, and the other is originally from Canterbury). This record is a more left field turn than their first, but, we can assure you, both tracks will break discerning dancefloors wide open.

Both EPs are due out Friday, July 24th, though we never know exactly when they’ll arrive because of the current state of affairs in the record pressing world. They’ll be here soon enough, though, and you can immediately pre-order them on the Mister Store. Remember that you get free digital downloads of the tracks on the album if you pre-order the physical copies, and we ship you the physical copies as soon as we have them in stock.

This Mister Sunday: Ends Meat And A Smoking Section

mrsun_email_2015

We’re getting down this Sunday as usual. The only two changes for this week are that Ends Meat will be subbing in for Nowadays in the food court, and we’ve created a smoking section so we can keep most of Mister Sunday smoke-free. If you wanna have a cigarette, just head back to the back half of the courtyard behind the main bar. (There are signs around the space that will lead the way.) Finally, we’re starting to get full again, so we do recommend advance tickets.

That’s it! Hope to see you this Sunday!!!

Eamon Harkin: Four Hours From Mister Sunday, June 14th 2015

Eamon Harkin recorded live at Industry City playing solo all day long whilst Justin Carter manned duties at Mister Sunday in London. As has become customary this is two recordings combined into one – one direct from the mixer and one from a microphone perched in a tree just off the dancefloor.

Eamon’s Album Of The Week: Speak Your Peace by Terry Callier

It’s been a busy week over here at the Mister/Nowadays HQ so we’ll let the music do the talking. This Sunday I’ll be opening up Mister Sunday with a full airing of Terry Callier’s ‘Speak Your Peace’.

-Eamon
