Take one part Tom Waits with one part Beat Happening with no parts Glenn Danzig, and you have some gothy/dreamy/steamy/eemi under pop by a guy who is a king. Well, he’s King Dude, and in this musical story called “Jesus In The Courtyard”, it’s about… I don’t know what it’s about, but what I like is that this sounds like the kind of song recorded in a town that sells only one brand of toilet paper, and it’s made in that exact down because they don’t believe in outsiders. Yet everyone is an outsider trying to get in trying to get out trying… it’s scary. All that echo and reverb stimulates my mind and rinds.
You’ll be able to hear more recho, reverb, and rinds on their forthcoming DAIS album on October 16th called Burning Daylight, but right now you’ll be able to see them in a live setting because they are touring.
