Next Big Thing: MNDR

Caps-locked NYC-via-L.A. DJ/singer MNDR (real name: Amanda Warner) has been steadily building a Lady-Gaga-meets-Santigold buzz for her smart beats and blow-’em-away live sets. Details and tracks are scarce on her MySpace page, but “Fade to Black” (as can be heard on JeffMix2010.01.24) and the slowed-down, brilliant left turn “I Go Away” (promo video below) show huge, OMG upside.
