RIYL: Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees

Label: Suicide Squeeze Records

It’s King Tuff, you know what to expect and you know you’ll love it!

The Details

Kyle Thomas’s work under the name King Tuff is a far cry from his primary gigs belting out stoner rock wails with Witch and conjuring lilting freak-folk with Feathers. With King Tuff, Thomas delivers no-nonsense, über-posi, guitar-driven pop. His 2008 album Was Dead was a hit among fans of jubilant, fuzzed out rock n’ roll, including the bigwigs at Sub Pop Records, who promptly snatched up King Tuff and Thomas’s related project Happy Birthday. While the world waits for King Tuff to whip out another full-length dose of righteous tunes, they can find temporary satiation with the two-song Wild Desire 7” on Suicide Squeeze. Both the title track and B-side “Hole In My Head” revel in the sound of guitar jangle and unmitigated stokedness cranked into the red. As part of their 20th anniversary celebratory series, Suicide Squeeze is proud to offer a limited repress of the Wild Desire 7" on 500 white vinyl copies with a download coupon.
