Late Late Rock Show 04/15/2018
King Krule released his second album ‘The Ooz’ back in October and I have not stopped playing it. He’s one of my all time favorite artists and I truly believe he will be remembered as one of the greats when we look back on music a few decades into the future. He has earned praise from Erykah Badu, Avey Tare, Tyler, the Creator, and even Kanye West, who he turned down a collaboration with, not because he wasn’t interested, but because he didn’t want to deal with the pressure of having to create on the spot. About a month ago he released his short concert on the moon and it’s just incredible. I personally think he needs to use his live band more on his records, watching him live helps me to appreciate the structure/melodies of certain songs that I wouldn’t have been able to dissect myself. Do not sleep on Archy Marshall.
Sam Ray makes it onto the playlist two times this week under two different monikers. One as his solo electronic project Ricky Eat Acid, and another with his old band Teen Suicide, who Spin Magazine gave a 9/10 to! Sam is an old friend of mine from high school back in Columbia, Maryland and it’s been such a trip to watch him rise as an artist. We all said he was going to be famous and he has even garnered praise from Iggy Pop! He makes music under many monikers, including Julia Brown and his newest excurtion, American Pleasure Club, in addition to the previous two projects mentioned.
