Hive Mind

Livvy Bennett is unwavering in her vocals. There’s a wisdom in her tone, compassionate but adamant, as she sings, “It doesn’t seem just to me/to expect exclusivity…” in Mamalarky‘s track “Nonmonogamy.” Listen carefully. It goes beyond eschewing a traditional relationship standard dictated by society, and more into the importance of communication and honesty.

You’ll find that gorgeous track (as well as today’s dreamy AMM selection, “Much Better”) on Mamalarky’s debut EP, Fundamental Thrive Hive. And, following their recent Studio 1A debut on Taylor Wallace‘s show, you can see Mamalarky tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River. Another excellent bill to soak up, including sets by more AMM faves Being Dead, Lolita Lynne, and Indoor Creature. The music begins at 9 p.m.

Ah, the affairs of the heart. Very recommended.
