Since the mid ‘80s, Sub Pop Records has specialized in exposing the world to some of music’s most unique artists, ranging from Nirvana to Father John Misty, and King Tuff’s inclusion on the label’s roster seems only natural. King Tuff has found a beautiful musical limbo existing somewhere between the psychedelic sounds of the early ‘70s and today’s indie pop craze.
“The Other” is the latest release from King Tuff. This collection of songs plunges listeners into a world of classic psychedelic rock with the occasional indie pop tangent that is reminiscent of the work of Bobby Conn & Glass Gypsies.
Azalea City underground band The Shunnarahs should provide the perfect complement to King Tuff. This group’s debut single “Catapult Me” is a stoney trip into the world of classic psychedelic garage and surf rock. Hopefully The Shunnarahs will have a debut album in the near future.
