Lo Moda Microshow

Lo Moda is Sam Hopkins, Raili Haimila, Gillian Quinn, Peter Quinn, Christian Sturgis, and Antony West — Drop-Out Soul from Baltimore USA. Sometimes described as descendants of Can, John Cale, Mission of Burma, the Fall, Pere Ubu, Rain Coats because of their stripped-down agit-prop pop sensibility.

They seem to rarely play shows, so it was a treat to get them all in to Mobtown Studios. The show was amazing and like I’ve never seen them. Enjoy the set below!
