the mayfair set
The Mayfair Set is the new collaborative project from Brooklyn's Blank Dogs + L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls, apparently named after a 1999 Adam Curtis-produced BBC documentary series. They haven't released anything quite yet, and their myspace page is only about two weeks old, but the group was nice enough to send over these tracks from their upcoming 7", due out very soon on Captured Tracks. We are totally in love with both of these songs, which combine Blank Dogs' dark, Joy Division-like baritone with DDG's bright, shimmering, '60s informed vocal melodies to create a warm sound that is at once haunting and hopeful.
the mayfair set :: desert fun
the mayfair set :: already warm
Look for a 12" EP from the Mayfair Set in the near future on Troubleman.
