Manic Productions Presents:

Small Black
Gracing the cover of Brooklyn band Small Black's new record, a mysterious woman walks alone on the dunes at dusk, amid pockmarked sand. She's the subject of a found photo, one of many rescued with the warmth of a blow dryer and a fireplace, by singer Josh Hayden Kolenik after Hurricane Sandy flooded his family's Long Island home. The faded image offers clues and invites viewers to construct their own narrative.Listen: http://www.small-black.com/

Mission Zero
Mission Zero is frequently asked the same two questions: “Are you guys twins?” and “Where’s the rest of the band?” Creating lush, shiny indie pop that fills a room, siblings Chenot and David Keith (no, they’re not twins) start with massive percussion and haunting vocals and flesh out their sound with live and pre-programmed synth and guitar. As WPKN Radio put it, “They sound much bigger than a duo.”

Mission Zero has been compared to duos Phantogram and the Eurythmics, as they combine “live and digital” to create music that embodies the power and freedom the siblings feel by going it (mostly) alone and keeping total creative control of their art. Coming from a musical family, the duo has never doubted that music was their path, and with each album, their goal of making their livelihoods solely by making music comes closer. “We’re happiest up on stage together,” confesses Chenot, “doing what we were always meant to do.”
