MSL: Mimi Sun Longo / Guitar
KYO: Josh Stark / Lead Electric Guitar, Harrison Cannon / Bass and Mike Rasimas / Drums
“Vocalist Mimi Sun Longo croons like a majestic songbird in a technicolor jungle.” – Deli Magazine NYC
Mimi Sun Longo
Vocalist and songwriter, with a baby blue guitar and a Marlboro bass, Mimi performs solo dream pop as an electronic multi-instrumentalist, and more recently, in a power-punk-dream-rock collaboration with the Beacon NY punk trio, Knock Yourself Out (KYO).
MSL (pronounced missile) is the latest incarnation of Mimi Sun Longo, whose projects have included MimiSun (’08), Higher Animals(’11), We Got Whales(’15), and now, MSL + KYO, with no end in sight for our expectations of MSL.
Last Fall, KYO’s monthly residency at Quinn’s Rest & Rant in Beacon, NY, showcased (among others) MSL covering Melissa Etheridge, Elvis Costello, and the Velvet Underground. The chemistry was obvious… the rest is history.
Together, MSL + KYO power an engine on fire. Loud, angsty, belting and bending notes – MSL achieves the grind of Janis Joplin and subtlety of Angel Olsen. Josh Stark’s loud lead riffs through layers of delay and distortion, push and pull in a winking attempt to tear at the impenetrable KYO rhythm section that is Harrison Cannon and Mike Rasimas.
