The Fader just premiered the new Mocky song “Little Bird”, the first glimpse of his upcoming “Graveyard Novelas EP (out in february 2013). “Graveyard Novelas” spans Mocky´s recent move from Berlin to L.A. and musically bridges the gap between these two metropolises, finding lots of common musical ground, from Berlin´s dark club sounds to L.A.´s hypnagogic songwriting renaissance. In making the EP Mocky used everything from a 30-piece choir to an autotuned vibraphone and the songs feature vocals from the silken voiced Hilary Gay and Pegasus Warning as well as Mocky himself, and Lucky Paul lends a hand on co-production.

“The 12-song album was recorded in Toronto and Big Sur, with Feist collaborating with frequent partners in crime Chilly Gonzales and Mocky, as well as producer Valgeir Sigurðsson” (Pitchfork). I also co-wrote 3 songs on the album (Bitterweet Melodies, Graveyard, Caught A Long Wind) and I’m very proud of the results. Stay tuned to everything regarding this album here!
