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.

mp3:
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.

I caught the Blank Dogs first ever live show in NYC a few months back. They were beyond terrible live. They sound good on their album, but not so great otherwise.

Also I thought the Blank Dogs didn't like any blog exposure as evidenced on their Myspace page blog notes.

I've never seen Blank Dogs live, so I'm not disagreeing. But these songs are incredible
