Only Midlands Date on their first UK tour. The Mystery Lights sound has evolved into a fuzz-fueled hopped-up 21st Century take on 60s garage pebbles, and artful 70s punk, that is all their own.
"The Mystery Lights are as good as it gets, one of New York's finest garage rock bands at the moment." - NME
Daptone Records (home of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, ...) is proud to present a group who are dominating the NOW sound in Rock 'n Roll!
That's right folks, Daptone Records, the world leader in today's soul music is now ready to take on the happenings of the modern rock scene and present to you, on their newest subsidiary, Wick Records; THE MYSTERY LIGHTS.
Their debut album was recorded to 8-track tape at Daptone's legendary House of Soul by Daptone studio superstar Wayne Gordon and mixed by Bosco Mann, it was the cutting engineer JJ Golden who called it "the hottest record I ever cut."
"Captivating, (...) firmly rooted in the tradition of Sixties garage and gritty NYC punk." - Rolling Stone
"There's a stoned, analog atmosphere hanging over everything, but there's a fire and toughness, too. [Mike] Brandon, like Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones before him, performs with a power and vigor that keeps him undeniable." - Pitchfork
"Truly trippy throwbacks to a filthier, more hallucinatory era, (...) 'Follow Me Home' comes straight out of that garage tradition, all Hammond organs and straightforward, declining riffs." - NOISEY
"The Mystery Lights have been making a name for themselves as one of NYC's best garage rock bands, and certainly as one of the best live shows." - Brooklyn Vegan
"Combine the aesthetic of [New York]'s downtown dwellers (like The Velvet Underground) with a present-day urgency." - NPR's World Cafe
