The Lagniappe Sessions: Muuy Biien cover Grace Jones / Swell Maps

Lagniappe (la ·gniappe) noun ‘lan-ˌyap,’ — 1. An extra or unexpected gift or benefit. 2. Something given or obtained as a gratuity or bonus.

I first caught Muuy Biien in their hometown of Athens, GA opening for Faust at the 40 Watt last March. The set was a dark, gothic and pummeling hour of post-punk immediately recalling the controlled chaos The Birthday Party. I next saw them in LA and most recently at our east coast AD party at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. In short, see this band live. Their next lp, Age of Uncertainty, is out October 28th via Autumn Tone.
