Mobile Steam Unit

Mobile Steam Unit set to drop new EP and play Rough Trade

The "our band transcends genres" is one of the most frustrating lines to come across in a band bio, but I'll be damned if Mobile Steam Unit's music is easy to wrangle into one of these nice and clearly defined boxes. The Brookyln-based five-piece, whose sound winds through early 90s alt, nudisco, funk, synthpop and country, manages to not only pull off an eclectic auditory tasting, but does so in such a tight way, that you almost forget that what you're listening to is bananas. It's all the chaotic goodness you'd never expect, but are stoked to have stumbled on.  We're hyped to hear that the band is dropping a new EP of what's sure to be highly virtuosic weirdo rock Oct 30th at Rough Trade, opening for RANN. While waiting you can get your Mobile Steam Unit fix by streaming them below. - Olivia Sisinni

Get weird with Mobile Steam Unit - live at Shea Stadium on 05.03

Mobile Steam Unit (who recently made our list of the Best emerging NYC bands of 2015) is not your usual Brooklyn band. Their second EP, Country Raw, released this past February, is a collection of moody tracks that blend melodic and electronic elements in a personal way. While opener “Waste My Time In The City,” with its deep electronic synths and vocoded vocals,  sets a dark and weird atmosphere reminiscent of French duo Air, following track 'VHS & SEX' relies on a more classic pop melody, with electric piano accompaniment evocative of Supertramp. In the remaining three songs, things keep bouncing from eerie to airy. The band will be performing at Shea Stadium on May 3rd together with Silverteeth. - Adriana S Ballester
