Malakye Grind's second release and first full length album "Music for Midnight People" reveals a band of life long friends making rock music at full throttle. The bands 11 track LP sends grunge, punk and old school funk groove into the midnight hours with Smith’s potent lyrics and the bands raw sound exploring the raucous and the reverie of the good times thread between dusk and dawn. With “Music for Midnight People” Malakye Grind revisits the classic long play archetype paying homage to the great days of rock album releases. Written and recorded over 12 months in Australia and the U.S and mixed by heavy weight engineer Forrester Savell (Birds of Tokyo and Karnivool) the bands new music delivers. MG has never sounded better and has never been so ready to enter the main stage.
