Midnight Masses – “Walk on Water”

As I’ve been highlighting in my recent trendspotting series, everyone seems to be collaborating these days.  Like Monsters of Folk and The Dead Weather, Midnight Masses appears to be the latest indie supergroup du jour that features an ever-expanding collective of mostly Brooklyn-based artists. And I like it.

On any given day the band could be a lean ensemble of its core members or an imposing 14-piece collection of string players, organists, and guests pulled from any number of Brooklyn’s finest bands – including Trail of Dead’s Kevin Allen, Jason Reece and Conrad Keely, TV on the Radio’s Gerard Smith and Jaleel Bunton, the bewitching Katie Eastburn, Peter Hale of Here We Go Magic, and more. Midnight Masses is preparing to gather once again for Rapture Ready, I Gazed At The Body, their debut EP, set for release on November 10th via Collect Records.
