Stream Rush Midnight’s killer debut album

We love it so much we want to share

Rush Midnight Tour Poster

There’s synth­ pop that gets the party started (Daft Punk), and there’s synth­ pop that helps you cool down in the aftermath (Toro Y Moi). Rush Midnight effortlessly bridges the gap between those two states. Brooklynite Russ Manning—total cutie and former bass player in Twin Shadow’s band—evokes the sweat-­glazed euphoria of steamy summer all­-nighters. His self-titled debut album (Last Gang Records) is all undulating bass, synco­pated beats, murmured vocals, deep-­funk synths and a tastefully deployed cowbell. —Sarah Liss
