Mike Pace, formerly of Brooklyn post-punks Oxford Collapse, is back with another excellent batch of catchy tunes from his eponymous project. While we last saw Mike in an acoustic phase (doing radically reinterpreted versions of his full band album), this time around he’s fully committed to delivering dynamic solo electric performances, using loops to build up the sound. We visited him in his Sunnyside, Queens, home for this exclusive, dog-friendly performance.
Smooth Sailing by Mike Pace And The Child Actors is available now.
