It took Mittland och Leo a while, but their first full lp 'Optimists' is ready and they present it this night!
These hi-hat tropics will blow those future autumn leaves straight out of your head. Although bass lines in this LP bump ever so gently towards the softer edge of the dance floor. The bittersweet synth lines switching between Atomium-era exotica and the memory of a perfect summer lone gone by, will tickle your brain where it hurts so good.


Last year they released their debut LP Manifold on the Belgian Kraak label. Recorded in two days on a crappy four-track and mixed with the use of an old tape echo, the songs hint to long forgotten Belgian wave, to the drunken lo-fi sadness of Drunk elk and the parlando driven poetry/synth unit The Shadow Ring.
