LISTEN: hypocrite in a hippy crypt, tweaker two

1682755812-1

2 years ago (wow it’s been that long?) i got an email from a college kid explaining his basement lo-fi one man band. i was already into just by his name alone. (check out that post HERE). tweaker two is an awesome follow-up to tweaker in the park. it’s slightly more large feeling but still has that “sitting on the curb smoking a bowl and breaking bottles in an abandoned parking lot” feel.

i appreciate its basic rawness and there isn’t a tune on the album that i haven’t liked. hyporcite in a hippy crypt puts a new spin on lo-fi angsty music as we know it.

stream tweaker two HERE.

listen to “freak me out” cuz that jam is my fucking favorite.

out now via tree machine records
