Midnight Kids - Basement Dreams (EP) (2010)

Whether the title is a statement of unambition or just something cool-sounding, Midnight Kids‘ "Basement Dreams" leaves few doubts about the D.C. band’s M.O. The group features three members of disbanded local faves the Apes, and contains many of their signifiers: Mean, muscular riffage, swirling organ powered by black magic, lyrics forged in the crucible of Mordor. Only, now it’s a Mordor strewn with disco balls and confetti. “Night Walk,” the record’s best song, assaults in fits and starts, like a swirling, brown-acid nightmare. What makes it work, though, is singer LouLou Ghelichkhani’s pretty, spacey lead vocal—she’s a foil to the sonic maelstrom, a glam-rock angel in a violent abyss.
