New: MillionYoung debuts Replicants LP

New: MillionYoung debuts Replicants LP {3}

Let’s keep the introductions short as I’m sure most of you are already familiar with Floridian dance-rock prodigy Mike Diaz — otherwise known as MillionYoung. To date, he’s released two breathtaking EP’s (Be So True and Sunndreamm) and a handful of shimmering synth-soaked singles. On January 11, his debut LP Replicants will be released as a digital download and, after many consecutive listens, I can certainly attest to how wonderful it is. So good, in fact, that it’s currently my Top Album of 2011. (Only 355 more days to go!)

If you’re a fan of fellow chillwavers Toro Y Moi, Washed Out, Neon Indian, Memory Tapes, and/or Teen Daze, then be sure to pick up the album tomorrow. And while you wait, check out a few of my favorite tracks from Replicants below.
