Name: MNDR
Progress Report: MNDR’s Amanda Warner chats about the group’s debut full length, Feed Me Diamonds.

MNDR is the brainchild of vocalist/musician Amanda Warner (who uses MNDR as her musical nom de plume) and producer Peter Wade. The two turned heads back in 2010 with their E.P.E. EP and excellent single… More »

Silk Flowers released a self-titled PPM full-length and the As Above So Below EP on Captured Tracks in 2009, but it’s their sophomore effort, the MNDR-produced Ltd. Form, that feels like it’ll bring them wider name recognition. (That lo-fi darkwave is no longer so lo-fi, etc.) The NYC trio of Ethan Swan, Aviram Cohen, and… More »

Hear Tegan And Sara, Carrie Brownstein, Katie Crutchfield, Dee Dee Penny, And More Sing A Feminist Theme For Rookie

Over the past few years, Rookie has become a pillar of feminist discussion on the internet so it makes sense they would be the ones to create a “feminist ‘We Are The World'” anthem to start off the new year. The zine recruited some of indie’s biggest stars to contribute vocals to “Go Forth, Feminist… More »

RAC – “Let Go (Holy Ghost! Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

We’ve previously heard “Let Go,” the Kele- and MNDR-assisted disco-pop delight from RAC and seen its video. It’s a wonderful single, and now we’re getting even more of it — RACs on RACs on RACs, if you will. Today RAC releases an EP of five “Let Go” remixes by the Krystal Klear, Holy Ghost!, Cherry… More »

RAC – “Let Go” (Feat. Kele & MNDR) Video

RAC, or Remix Artists Collective, has come a long way since we first came across him (and got him to make a mix for us) over half a decade ago. Just look at the stylish video for “Let Go,” a track which features Kele of Bloc Party and MNDR. Claire had a point when she… More »

RAC – “Let Go” (Feat. Kele & MNDR)

RAC is known for the wide sweep across the remixiverse they’ve been making since 2007 (including a series of Stereogum compilations), but every once in a while there is some original material thrown into the mix.

MNDR – “Faster Horses” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Last time down the official video track, MNDR’s Amanda Warner substituted Drag Race star Raven for herself in a very real, very closeup, cabaret club treatment. This time through in the John Threat-directed clip for “Faster Horses” it’s MNDR herself — awash in a sea of animation, barking beagles, trademark oversized frames, and horses (naturally!)… More »

Metric – “Breathing Underwater (MNDR Remix)”

Canadian pop-rock stars Metric already have themselves an effervescent synthpop hit with “Breathing Underwater,” and now downtown dance-popper MNDR has remixed the track, amping up its fleet-footed, blippy qualities. The song’s chorus is still a steamroller, but now the beat underneath it moves a whole lot more. Download the remix below. More »

Watch MNDR On Letterman

Last night, downtown future-popper MNDR was David Letterman’s musical guest. She brought a full string quintet along with her, as well as a percussionist and an electronic-gizmologist.

MNDR – “Feed Me Diamonds” Video

If you watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’ll recognize the queen getting gussied up then taking the stage to perform MNDR’s yearning “Feed Me Diamonds” as Raven. And if not, then meet Raven!

MNDR – “#1 In Heaven”

MNDR stays busy enough that she’s always still in the picture, but it’s probably a relief to her fans that she’ll be putting out her first full-length later this year.

As promised, “Cut Me Out” is the latest Green Label Sound single and the latest from MNDR, aka Amanda Warner. She starts her tour with Chromeo today in Québec City. “Cut Me Out” has some MNDR trademarks: clanking synths, self-harmonies, and a beat that stutters and charges. Listen:… More »

MNDR – “Caligula (The Cold Mix)”

MNDR’s had a great year. To celebrate that, plus a just-announced show in London, she’s giving away a “Cold Mix” version of “Caligula.” The track was originally released as a limited edition 12-inch back in July, but it didn’t make it to the web, so this’ll probably be the first time you’ve heard this club-ready… More »

Boy George and producer/Miike Snow singer Andrew Wyatt joined Mark Ronson on Later… with Jools Holland for their contribution to his guest-filled upcoming lp Record Collection.
