Oakland’s Mwahaha pack plenty of left turns into the electronic-psych-pop of “Rainbow Diamond,” the first single from the group’s self-titled album, out December 6th. The band includes Ross Peacock (ex-Clipd Beaks) along with brothers Nathan and Cyrus Tilton. All three of them used to be in Ned (and yes, I know there are four guys in their press photo).
Other key facts: Mwahaha was recorded with Eli Crews, and features Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards singing on one song. Also, remixes are forthcoming from Jel and Odd Nosdam.
