Download This: Raleigh Moncrief

Check this track out from Raleigh Moncrief...  Pretty amazing stuff. Wish I had more deets, but I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for this release.

Raleigh Moncrief  Vitamins EP  cover

Sacramento, California's Raleigh Moncrief creates a blend of existential reflection and ecstatic, profound epiphany on his debut LP Watered Lawn. Following a string of EP's and singles in 2009 and 2010, Watered Lawn finds Moncrief at his most focused and concise, blending the hip hop and post dub-step present in his past releases seamlessly with his gravely, damaged voice and virtuosic guitar. His dense and warbling textures lend themselves to creating an atmosphere where light shines only through cracks in decaying walls of sound. A producer at heart, Moncrief worked closely with Dave Longstreth in 2008 to design the sound of the Dirty Projectors' breakthrough album Bitte Orca, his taste for bewildering sounds complimenting Longstreth's bizarro-pop modusoperandi. Most recently, he has completed the forthcoming full-length for the post-garage rock group Ganglians.

"Lament for Morning" is the first single off the upcoming album Watered Lawn. Feel free to post and let me know if you'd like more info.
