Honeyed Words: Weekend Playlist by Majjin Boo

by | Nov 15, 2019 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you an essential playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This week, we’re celebrating the release of Majjin Boo’s debut LP, Go Between, last month on Egghunt Records by reposting the playlist they made for us back in the spring. At the time, they were briefly using the name Cardinal, but they have returned to their original name for Go Between, a collection of excellent melodic math-rock tunes created over their first few years as a band. If you haven’t yet obtained a copy, we highly encourage you to do so — cassette and digital copies are available at Egghunt’s Bandcamp.

You can pair it with Majjin Boo’s playlist, which brings together a variety of inspiring indie, punk, math-rock, and emo sounds, and goes quite a ways beyond these narrow genre confines as well. The combination of this playlist with the seven tracks on Go Between will create the perfect start to your weekend.

Let it flow, Virginia.
