Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you a truly fantabulous playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This time around, we’re bringing you a great list of tunes from Opin, the Richmond band formed from the ashes of White Laces and Navi, among others. Their second full-length album, Media & Memory, will be out next month on WarHen Records, and will be accompanied by a remix album as well. The first single, “Ezprt,” is out now, and you’ll be able to check it out as part of the playlist Opin have assembled for us.
Their playlist has plenty more to offer as well, everything from ambient shoegaze to hard-hitting hip hop, as well as some groundbreaking early influences and a whole bunch of local friends and peers. According to Opin’s Landis Wine, “It’s a mix of what we’ve been listening to during quarantine, tracks that influenced the record and folks we either worked with on the album or played with in the past year or so.” If you want a varied, unpredictable, but always entertaining listen for this cool, cloudy final weekend of summer, you can’t do better than this collection of tunes brought to us by Opin.
Soak it in, Virginia.
