Are we all tired of the "[Artist] Returns After [Number] Years in Obscurity" headline yet? Because Michna sure is.

Nearly seven years following the NYC DJ/producer's debut album for Ghostly, Magic Monday, he's finished the official follow up to that record, but Adrian Yin Michna doesn't want to overstate what happened in the interim.

"Life just moves," he starts casually, "there's been a lot going on." DJ gigs, music production for video games and commercials, and film scoring have kept him busy, along with a healthy balance of painting, biking, and other non-musical endeavors.

In light of Michna's sophomore LP, Thousand Thursday, though, it all seems beside the point.

Simply put, his latest record is a celebration of the producer's love for vibrant electronic music, bothering very little with conceptual or contextual baggage.

For all of its varying influences and reference points, Thousand Thursday is actually a strong cohesive listen; each of Michna's productions flow seamlessly into the next.

This is an album where NYC/LA dance-pop vocalist MNDR can deliver her chilly falsetto next to a lifelong gearhead twiddling the knobs of his Akai S950, Korg MS20, Emu SP1200, and other coveted hardware.

Thousand Thursday is the sound of Michna re-discovering his passion for writing tunes and crafting an album, and whether he likes it or not, it all tells us a bit about where his mind has been during the years of his process.
