RIYL: King Tuff, Ty Segall, Levitation Room

Label: Baby Carrot Records

I’ve been a fan of Long Beach miscreant J. Burd since his 2015 single In My Head with Shed House Records.  Supplying a hefty amount of lofi bedroom blues in those days, J. Burd has expanded his sound into psychedelic territory.  The blues foundation is still intact in his newer material, but the grooves are sharper and the vocal treatment has sprouted a scuzzy drugged-out tone.  Time Scare glides along a How Many More Times riff, but reaches further into the cosmos for maximum dopamine absorption.

Baby Carrot Records also has a standard black vinyl option limited to 175 as well as 5 test presses, but the randomly-colored vinyl, limited to just 25 copies, will go the quickest.  Listen to the studio takes after the ‘buy’ link and check out some live versions below.
