2LP – 140g Vinyl
(Housed in a Gatefold sleeve with printed inners.)
Ed Banger Records presents Born A Loser, Myd’s first album. Featuring Mac de Marco, Juan Wauters and Bakar.
A drunken round of jazzercise, a lazy float in the kiddie pool, your weird uncle gyrating under disco lights. Myd’s debut album Born Loser is a soundtrack to life’s strange delights. After a decade of experience, the Lille-bred producer perfects his solo sound on this 14-track collection. Indie electro grit meets infectious pop hooks, wrapped in passionate depth. It’s a little bit folksy with a French touch soul, all fed through Myd’s surreal filter.
Myd is a homemade anti-hero. Purposefully approachable and painfully relatable, his world is one of hyper-normal, mundane scenes melting into fever dreams. Take a stack of ’80s records, spill a Mai Tai across the collection and watch the covers bleed in psychedelic swirls. That’s the warbled sheen of Myd’s calling card, feeding melodies through cassette recorders and cheap analog gear for a distinctly DIY effect.
Completing the album took more than dedication. Myd also took vocal lessons, learning to trust not just his style choices but his own voice. There are only a handful of collaborations, including Uruguayan folk artist Juan Wuaters and Bakar. Likewise, the album’s title track takes its name and spirit from a dizzying and hypnotic loop of Bobby Lee’s 1966 song “I Was Born A Loser.”
