Music: Michna

Michna, real name: Adrian Michna, grew up in both NY and Miami. And he draws influences from both the urban and the tropical of both these metropolises.

Besides the superb album art by FriendsWithYou on his debut LP Magic Monday, it has some of the best liner notes ever written:

Back in 1993 I worked at a bike shop with a bunch of mountain bikers. They looked down on me like the young bmx guy and said stuff like, “When you gonna get a real bike?” One jock in particular (who had just discovered weed) hung around the shop, flexed his muscles, and said (with a mouthful of Powerbar), “All I wanna do is work out, eat Powerbars, and smoke a lotta pot.”
