The ’90s were a strange period for music. There was (of course) grunge, which stiffened the rise of innovative punk and indie rock bands from Earth to Sebadoh from coast to coast, but a goth-wave hovered over New York City during that time–and longtime promoter Justine D gives us a modern reminder of it on Rvng Prsnts Mx5: Justine D.

Hardly a stranger to the city’s grimier side, the nightlife diva takes a cue from legendary clubs like the Limelight, Pyramid, and Palladium for this disc, offering a glimpse into those aforementioned dark days of the New York underground. With tracks ranging from Death in June’s “Nation” (so amazing), to Arthur Russell’s “Make 1, 2,” to Crass’ “Walls,” the club matron takes us on a narrative hike through different periods and genres that shaped generations of creative thought. Limited to 1000 copies and produced at Optimo’s Glasgow studio by Twitch, Rvng Prsnts Mx5-is a monumental-mix.
