MNDR, a/k/a Amanda Warner, a/k/a the thinking person’s club-pop diva, has been a Voice obsession for awhile now; last seen stalking the stage with Q-Tip as part of Mark Ronson’s improbably successful and coherent live electro-soul revue, her live shows are a tremendous audio-visual feast of the glamorous and the geeky, of mainstream-pop hedonism and Fader-subscriber semi-exotica. Do go see her if you get the chance. In the next few months you have a few.
She’ll be on her own at Santos Party House on December 17, aiding that spot’s tentative resurgence, before joining up with fellow SOTC darlings Chromeo for a joint tour in 2011. (Which would seem to be hitting Terminal 5 February 4, though she’s not officially on that bill yet.) Her debut album will be out next year; while you wait, she’s still giving away “Caligula (Cold Mix)” for free on their website:
“Fade to Black” is still the jam, but this will do nicely.
