Electronic glitch rock group Mr. Meeble has released a new EP, Nostalgic For Now, on the Phoenix-based label, Absolute Motion.
The duo of Devin Fleenor and Michael Plaster completed the tracks during their European tour in the fall of 2011.
In addition to the EP, the band has created a technological spectacle in the form of the "Star Power" music video.
The EP "sounds like remembering", according to Fleenor, who describes it as a more optimistic work than their 2008 full-length debut, 'Never Trust the Chinese'. "Our first album... is the dark aftermath of a real life catastrophe. Nostalgic For Now comes from a happier place, but don't expect upbeat. My life is a complicated, intense and beautiful mess - I'm guessing the music reflects that."
Mr. Meeble - Star Power video:
Mr. Meeble's unwavering do-it-yourself philosophy has lead to a substantial fan base on YouTube and around the world. This enabled them to book and organize a tour of 11 European countries last year without the aid of a booking agency.
Its live show revolves around captivating visual elements using powerful RGB lasers, videos, and other contraptions like a custom-made infrared-projection bodysuit named the "ghost portal".
This bizarre visual device is featured heavily in the "Star Power" music video. The next wave of live shows is currently being planned for fall of 2012.
