Tender Loving Empire just signed a new band from Seattle called King Friday. When TLE discovered them, they were sitting on 9 complete albums – and they were all awesome. They have a whimsy that can’t be faked – a non-self-aware-stoner-dork vibe. These guys aren’t trying to do something different. They are different. Most importantly, they have an overwhelming passion for creating gritty, pretty psych-pop.
Tender Loving Empire will be releasing one of King Friday’s nine albums every few months until every single song is out, shedding a little light on otherwise buried gems.
We are premiering one of the songs now:
“Cowboys Must Burn Their Eyes Always Riding At The Sun”
