Featuring: BLKKATHY, Safe, & Lord Warddds Greatest Hits
“BLKKATHY is a Brooklyn-based pop duo that represents a new voice in the R&B spectrum, one that finds empowerment in refreshingly understated ways” – Jeff Min, Wax Poetics
Safe is self-described Missoula-to-Berkeley “goat enthusiast and musical multimedia artist” CF Edley, more formally Christopher F. Edley III. He tells the world he likes “birdwatching, goats, cooking goats, tobacco, singing at audiences, vorticist art, sticks and such, whiskey, sus chords when appropriate, Somali pirates kinda, the name ’Dudus,’ the drummer Tony Williams, a whole host of friends, Matouk’s hot sauce, garage and loft disco, the political oval because it’s no spectrum,” etc. What’s all that sound like? It’ll be hard not to think of Arthur Russell or subliminal loft jazz in these airy, whispered, instantly addictive (but almost silent) songs. Unlike the promo blurb, the work’s understated and bracingly spare. Edley’s music is both distant (a side-effect of volume?) and intimate (a side-effect of volume?). Get acquainted via the first two tracks from the self-titled 10-song debut EP. – Stereogum
Lord Warddd was a founder member of seminal electronic act Lo-Fidelity Allstars. He now runs Deep Ellum Records. Tonight he will be collaborating with various artists on his label. Come and watch, it will be messy fun.
