Back in 2008, Kay Kay And His Weathered Underground released a 7” through Suburban Home Records that featured the singles “Diggin’” and “My Friends All Passed Out.” Since then, those two singles have shown up on the band’s forthcoming effort Introducing…, which is currently available to stream here!
As if the full album stream wasn’t great enough, Kay Kay recently revealed information in regards to a 06/26/11 physical release! To celebrate, the band held a record release show at The Triple Door in Seattle, WA on 06/12/11. While we were not present for the show, Kay Kay’s bandcamp page now has a recording of the entire event! In his opening remarks at the show, frontman Kirk Huffman said that this was “a long time coming,” and we completely agree with his sentiments.
If you are interested in viewing some live videos from the Introducing… record release show, head on over to TheHungover’s youtube page! Quality footage of an amazing performance! Here is one example:
This track from MFPP man-crush Damon Albarn was initially written for Gorillaz, but will appear in Albarn’s upcoming opera Dr. Dee instead. Watch him perform it live on the Andrew Marr Show.
