Dancethink” music makers My Dear Disco remix Kanye West and Franz Ferdinand amid press props and continued touring.


Grammy-nominated Shiny Toy Guns, Cure, Tricky knob-turner Mark Saunders turns out band’s latest for fans of VHS or Beta, Donna Summer, and Devo.


“...those with a taste for dance-rock inspired by 1980s sounds and heavy synths, take note.” –


My Dear Disco is a force to be reckoned with! I hope any follow-up to their Dancethink LP is as grossly enjoyable and engaging. A feat these days, to make something this good. I want more!” –


“...chock full of deliciously smooth, synth-laden beats designed to send listeners swirling and whirling about on the dance floor.” – My Old Kentucky Blog


Emerging from the Ann Arbor suburb of Detroit, My Dear Disco has been cutting a path throughout the Midwest with its addictive self-branded style of “danethink” music which displays influences from Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder to Daft Punk and Tom Waits. The band has kept busy in the studio as well, recently producing remixes of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” (MP3) and Franz Ferdinand’s “Ulysses” (MP3) that incorporate the band’s live instrumentation into each tune’s original tracks.


Known for its distinctive, “Dancethink Music,” My Dear Disco’s debut album Dancethink LP (watch the trailer HERE) has met with much critical acclaim since its release and the band’s unique sound and style has begun to make waves nationwide.  The album features mixes by Grammy-nominated engineer Mark Saunders and his multi-platinum record generating studio in New York, the same people responsible for the sound of Shiny Toy GunsWe Are Pilots, Tricky’s Maxinquaye, David Byrne’s Feelings, and The Cure’s Wish. Additionally, the band’s high energy, inventive live shows have been generating hard-fought praise all their own (see the band perform “White Lies” LIVE.)


In 2008, My Dear Disco was named one of the most promising bands in the country by American Eagle’s “New Music Union” and was invited to perform at the American Eagle Summer Festival, curated by Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers.  This resulted in a fully-stocked summer 2008 festival schedule where the band performed alongside artists such as Lotus, Moe, Buckethead, and Bela Fleck. My Dear Disco continues on the road and will hit the festival circuit once again in the summer of 2009, in full-flight, following its “Dancethink Music,” wherever it takes them.
