Some Velvet Guests 10 - Ava Luna

Some Velvet Guests 10 - Ava Luna

Playing tracks by

B.W.H., Big Star, The Slits, Rose Royce, Dorothy Ashby and more.

As C.R. Weingarten said at his column at The Village Voice, Yes In My Backyard: "Brooklyn's Ava Luna is the rare band that needs to be heard to be believed. In the band's hazy, floaty, post-TVOTR-maybe conceit, post-punk grooves, soaring soul harmonies, and classic indie detachment join forces for something beautiful, infectious, and damn-near indescribable".*
Certainly it's a close description of their music, but we'd tried to go further in that, so we asked them a mixtape to get some of their influences. And that's what they come up with: enjoy it!
