“While TV On The Radio remains on hiatus, its members stay fully busy. A couple days ago FADER TV talked to Kyp Malone about his Rain Machine solo project; last Saturday, Tunde Adebimpe hosted the Radio Happy Hour variety show in Manhattan; Dave Sitek is probably producing the next pop masterpiece; and Gerard Smith and Jaleel Bunton both jump on this new song from malleable Brooklyn group Midnight Masses. Smith produced it and Bunton lends his as-yet-unheard spectral vocal chords, and both leave no doubt that TVOTR is much more than its three most visible members. As far as Midnight Masses, this open-armed approach is kind of their whole thing, with appearances from Trail of Dead and Here We Go Magic members a not uncommon facet of both their album and live show. And judging by the results of “Walk On Water,” if anyone else wants to jump in the studio with them it would probably not be a bad thing. If “Walk On Water” suits you, the band’s new EP Rapture Ready, I Gazed At The Body is produced entirely by Gerard Smith and will be out Nov 10th via Collect Records.” – Pete Macia.

Midnight Masses is an ever-expanding collective of mostly Brooklyn-based artists, led and formed by Autry Fulbright in the wake of his father’s untimely death in 2008. On any given night 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.
