Very happy yesterday afternoon to see that Lexington Kentucky's Idiot Glee got the Daytrotter treatment. I have been a huge fan of James Friley's work since that video I posted a few months back for his cover of "Ain't No Sunshine" recorded by Ian Perlman. The bio on Daytrotter compares Friley's vocal sound to those of soul singers from the past and I would have to agree. There is definitely something unique to the electronic conducting artist's vocal style that sets him apart from many of the artists of our time. The music feels a bit vintage yet satisfies the contemporary and modern craving.
A digital EP can be found here, the "All Packed Up" 7'' to be released October 4th here and cassette here.
