MP3 of the Day: Ava Luna, "Past the Barbary"

Ava LunaEver wonder what the soundtrack to a fight between James Brown and Dirty Projectors would sound like? Ava Luna's latest album "Ice Level" would definitely be a top contender. Very few bands can be described as both "Stax meets Kraftwerk" and "nervous soul," but Brooklyn-based Ava Luna's brand of deconstructed R&B is unique enough to make it work.

Last winter, Ava Luna came in to WFMU to play a set on Beastin the Airwaves. It was a long planned and long-time coming event, first discussed back in 2008 before Ava Luna's first album, "3rd Avenue Island" was even released. Clearly, they'd spent a lot of the time between then and now practicing, because they sounded great. Check out closing track "Past the Barbary" below, and download the whole set here!
