MV & EE Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
MV (Matt Valentine) and EE (Erika Elder) have been partners in life and music for a good long while now: they know themselves, each other, and their sound inside out. Root / Void strays away from the heavier psych-jams they’ve often produced, instead rocking a more pastoral form of psychedelica. Beautiful and intimate stuff. LP on Woodist.
Alpine Frequency by MV & EE has been likened to a pair of Neil Young’s patched-up jeans, suggesting that, unlike their previous work, it is a collage of sound. A patchwork quilt of sounds brought together to make a sprawling double LP. They mix psychedelia, appalachian folk and aspects of indian music to make their sound. As ever, the Vermont-based duo are joined by a cast of hangers-on that this time include PG Six, Mick Flower and Rafi Bookstaber, to name a few.
- Vinyl Double LP (FTR167LP)
Psychedelic couple Matt Valentine and Erika Elder make up MV & EE. Together they blur their guitars together to make a rather free-form slice of New Weird America. 'Alpha Lyrae' has shades of acts like the No Neck Blues band, created from a cacophony of folk and noise that rarely becomes clear, though it's sometimes laid back and easier on the ear. It's folk rock in its traditional form, in one way: it rambles. This is the first ever LP release for Child Of Microtones.
