  11 MiWi LaLupa
New Way Home (MiWi’s 2014 release) is a short, immediate, and catchy album, but its real magic lies in its ability to invoke a wide range of sonic diversity while not losing sight of its singular vision.

The album’s songs range from playfully vengeful (“Everybody’s Fuckin’ With Me”) to sorrowfully serious (“New Moon”). The songs document a season in a life, offering empathy to the listener while asking for the same in return.
MiWi has worked with the likes of Spoon, Red Baraat, Bill Frisell, Conor Oberst, Brazilian Girls, Charlie Hunter and David Byrne/St. Vincent to name a few.
