Ishi ( http://www.ishimusic.com/ ), the fun rock duo form Dallas, TX, are my new fave wizards of dance! Their music is self-described as ranging “from funk, nu disco, and indie rock bathed in the gospel of Prince/LCD Sound System.”
Comprised of JT Mudd ( https://www.instagram.com/jtmudd/ ) and Jonathan Merla ( https://www.instagram.com/merlajonathan/ ), the name Ishi is they brought a mystical, multi-sensory, dance party to Pianos in NYC.
Their third EP Juno ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/juno-ep/id1139860860 ) was released on September 20016, and for you art nerds out there, you should know that Ishi teamed up, again, with UK artist James Marsh ( http://jamesmarsh.com/design/ishi/ ), known for his creative album art concepts with experimental UK band Talk Talk ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk_Talk ).
These wonderful humans have decided to lead the way by paying it forward and donating 50% of all digital sales to Music Is Our Weapon (http://musicisourweapon.org/), a non-profit organization that focuses on providing music therapy to people with cognitive disorders.
Fellow nerds, c’on! These guys throw an uplifting dance party and have committed to helping a cause for the betterment of humanity. You need to get out there and dance with them, and experience the “power of music as medicine” for yourself!
But, I warn you, you will most likely walk away with a huge smile on your face. Their positive, fun, sexy, vibe is infectious.
