Decorations translate frustration into sun-kissed, slick, and sharp anthems that everybody could dance their troubles away too like “Nu wave without all the sadness.” The group’s debut Girls EP earned early praise from Stereogum, drumming up an organic buzz. Now, the group’s 2016 full-length debut, Have Fun, written, produced, and performed entirely by mainman Devon Geyer, creates a soundtrack for a universal story.
Miwi La Lupa
Song hound Miwi La Lupa is a dreamer, someone who's human core is as gentle and endearing as his voice. In 2005, Miwi made it down the Hudson River from Buffalo to the city of New York, and a decade later, he has made impactful impressions as a singer-songwriter, a session musician and multi-instrumentalist.

Now in the spotlight with his solo endeavor, Miwi La Lupa and his wolf pack create melodies that stitch a seamless foundation for his wistful prose. The core band is built of NYC friends and comrades Tim Allen (guitar)​, Jesske Hume​ (b​ass and ​v​ocal​s) ​​​​and Conor Elmes​ (Drums).

Evolving from his familiarity with improvisational music, MiWi took a giant step into the world of folk with his 2014 debut album “A New Way Home” on Team Love Records. Mainly writing about the grief of a love that strayed too far, La Lupa was able to pull at the heartstrings and create an engulfing experience for all with his first studio album.

Miwi La Lupa approached the beginning of 2016 with a move to Omaha, Nebraska, a European tour with good friends Samuel Blatter, Big Harp, The Good Life, Dook Dootson and Roamer Extended, and the release of his 2016 sophomore album titled “Ended Up Making Love” on Team Love Records. ​ ​With a collaborative production effort from Mike Mogis and Conor Oberst the album was recorded in all of just 2 weeks at Arc Studios in Omaha, Nebraska and was mastered by Doug Van Sloun. When asked how it felt to be working with Mogis & Oberst, Miwi had all but one word to describe it: natural.

“Ended Up Making Love” is the product of a dive in the deep end that proved that not every end is a halting experience. Forbearing and truthful “Ended Up Making Love” sets Miwi up for a welcoming introduction to his third record titled “Beginner’s Guide”.
His ability to sonically envelop listeners comes from the innate need to tell a story.
Through relatable lyrics and catchy riffs, La Lupa continues his story with “Beginner’s Guide”.

“Beginner’s Guide” was released on September 26th, 2016 on Tiger Shrimp Records.
