"So Polite Of You" by The Mid Cities

Echo Park‘s The Mid Cities is multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Price’s solo side project when he isn’t busy playing guitar for Ferraby Lionheart, Correatown, or The Californian. He claims that the songs are the emotional result of “the difficulties of prolonged periods away: crumbling relationships, substance abuse, and complete disconnection.” While that might be reflected in his evocative lyrics, Price is a natural songwriter and his music can be optimistically connectable via hushed swaying tones or catchy dancing tempos. His debut album should be finished by the end of September, but for now you can enjoy the upbeat “So Polite Of You”:

The Mid Cities will perform (featuring The Breakups frontman Jake Gideon on guitar) this Tuesday at The Central with The Ross Sea Party, Opus Orange, and The Dead Ships.
