Mickey Mickey Rourke - MMR
LA's Miller Rodrigeuz, aka Mickey Mickey Rourke, just released his second full length - MMR - and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the free download he's offering; you won't regret it.
I recently blogged about his previous album, Festive Bummer, utterly floored by Miller's impressive ability to craft ambient music as delicate, dreamy, and beautiful as Ducktails, Universal Studios Florida, or even Sigur Rós. I must admit, however, that he's outdone himself with MMR.
The album hosts a gorgeous mix of instruments and stylings, which plays out like one long, wild - albeit cohesive - head trip. In theory, Miller's artistic scope seems overly ambitious; one might assume, in other words, that the musical twists and turns throughout MMR couldn't work. However, Rodrigeuz proves that he knows what he's doing and that such disparate sounds can sound amazing, even magical.
Download the album and soundtrack your summer with one of 2010's most pleasing offerings.
