Jacksonville, Florida's multimedia colorful music and art project Mikey's Imaginary Friends is set to independently release its ninth album entitled Powerful Rectangles: Part One on July 3, 2013. The new experimental rock album is reminiscent of the nineties, with a minimal, melodic, post-grunge feel. It was recorded at Warehouse Studios in Jacksonville, whose claim to fame involves its late 1960s relationship with Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Powerful Rectangles: Part One features James McMurray on drums, Roger McCoy on harmonica and Jess Ulloa with backing vocals. Ryan Turk, who engineered the album, also contributes additional guitars, keys, and vocals. Mikey Kettinger, the project's founder, provides songwriting, sound art sample arrangements, guitar, bass, and vocals.
M.!.F plans to support the release of Powerful Rectangles: Part One with an art show and free party at Swagsonville in downtown Jacksonville for Art Walk on July 3, followed by a tour of the southeast, and the release of Powerful Rectangles: Part Two in late 2013.
