Mexican Summer and Ballroom Marfa presented the Marfa Myths festival last March in Marfa, Texas. During the festival, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes and Connan Mockasin teamed up to create three original songs.
These three songs are compiled on the Marfa Myths 001 EP, which is out now. The EP’s tracklist includes, “La Fat Fur”, “Big Distant Crush”, and “Feelin Lovely” which you can hear below.
According to Pitchfork, Mexican Summer and Ballroom Marfa have announced that Marfa Myths will return to Marfa March in 2016. This year Natalie Mering, Weyes Blood, will work with a special guest collaborator who will be revealed at the festival.
Dev Hynes released a “Blood Orange” track last week “Sandra’s Smile”. Marfa Myths 001 EP, is heavy on ’80s pop and sultry tones. Hynes’ last full-length was in 2013 with Cupid Deluxe and Mockasin’s was 2013’s Caramel.
