Rush Midnight is Russ Manning, a young Brooklyn resident and former Twin Shadow sideman who now makes lush, slinky dance-pop on his own. He’s got a self-titled debut album coming out, and Death From Above 1979?s Jesse F. Keeler produced it. The single “In Your Room” is bubbly, funky, faraway bedroom pop, like what Washed [...]
