Midnight in a Perfect World: GEMS

photo by Kristen Wrzesniewski

GEMS is the blossoming musical duo of LA-via-DC artists Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher. Their recent debut full length album, Kill The One You Love, has quickly become a KEXP favorite, with the record’s brilliant lead single, “Living As A Ghost”, handsomely showcasing their rich and dreamy mixture of shoegaze, electronic-pop, and R&B styles. Their exclusive mix for Midnight In A Perfect World finds them piecing together timeless tracks from the 1980s and 1990s that reveal a heavy dose of their sonic inspirations and nostalgic favorites.
