TV On The Radio man goes it Malone
TV On The Radio guitarist/vocalist Kyp Malone's new solo venture - 'Rain Machine'
Kyp Malone, guitarist-vocalist for soul-tinged art-rockers TV On The Radio, is set to release an album of his own solo material under the moniker ‘Rain Machine’ through Anti- Records in September. According to the label, listeners should expect Malone`s new material to be "emotionally raw and passionate yet still experimental and full of surprises."
Malone describes the birth and journey that his solo music has taken: "I`ve been writing and recording songs alone since I moved to NYC in 2000, at first alone because I didn`t know anyone, then through the years by choice because of a particular freedom that going it alone afforded" and describes his `Rain Machine` album as "a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear - a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined, some rhythm and some rhyme."
Malone evidently has faith in his work and its impact on an audience, suggesting that it will "bring the listener to a higher level of consciousness, that peace and happiness are attainable through bathing in its sounds." The statement was followed, however, with a somewhat ironic "LOL" and concluded with the far less wanky "Really though, I had a great time making this record and I hope listeners enjoy it."
The album is due for release on the 21st September. In the mean time, there`s a sample track, `Give Blood`, for listeners to wrap their hungry alt-rock ears around - http://mediatmp.anti.com/
