    I hadn’t heard of these guys until today when I stumbled across a promo on Ebay featuring J Mascis. So I checked it out. The wikipedia entry for MV&EE lists J as a former member but according to Ecstatic Peace he’s the current drummer.

    New to me so I thought I’d post it on the off chance is was to anybody else.

    MV & EE is a group of musicians focused around Matt "MV" Valentine and his partner Erika "EE" Elder. Matt Valentine was in the neo-psychedelic group, The Tower Recordings and has also released music under his own name and the pseudonym, Matthew Dell. While the duo recorded under many different names, including MV & EE Medicine Show and The Bummer Road, most of the records center around both artists and feature a rotating cast of additional musicians. Their style is self-described as "lunar ragas", with many of the lyrics dealing with celestial imagery. They combine Indian raga style composition with Appalachian folk and post-psychedelic electrical experimentalism. They use Western and Eastern acoustic instruments amplified and augmented with effects such as reverb, delay, and flange. Their compositions occasionally feature vocals, which are off-kilter and rambling, while seeming drugged.

    Yeah, I think they are really good.
    Gettin’ Gone is my favourite record. J plays drums on 3 or 4 tracks.
    On the latest album Barn Nova I think he plays a little more stuff.
