Gardens & Villa

Gardens & Villa (Santa Barbara, Calif.)
Electronic/Indie Rock

Yet another awesome California band on the MPMF roster, Gardens & Villa are coming at Cincy all the way from Santa Barbara and we’re so glad they’re here. The super talented and rather good-looking quartet is made up of Christopher Lynch, Adam Rasmussen, Shane McKillop and Levi Hayden. They recently spent the winter in Michigan because they’re idiots but also they were working with Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, The Rapture) to record their new album, Dunes. Isolated in the depths of a studio filled with cool gear and very little heat, Gardens & Villa created its best album yet, full of music that feels just as triumphant as the story members tell about their album name. (Ask them!)
