A Duck Named Ping - The Dirty Queen and The Coming Clean
I didn't want to like this, but it ended up being enjoyable. Not really sure what to write - either because I'm speechless or just not well versed in this genre of music (maybe a little of both?). It's just really simple, melancholy, piano-based songs. The artist resides in Richmond (which I believe Nerve City does as well when he's not in Miami!). I get the same heavy feeling when I listen to this that I do when I listen to Daniel Johnston....it's a sort of "not wanting to look at a car crash but you end up looking anyway" feeling...
This is part of the releases that White Moon Recordings sent me, one more to come plus a special surprise post!
