“All anyone wants to be is what they can.”
In an era when networked access to information is nearly universal and wearing influences on your sleeve is normalized, it often feels like everything’s been done. Which begs the questions: What’s the point of creating? Does the world need another still life of fruit? Another film about love? Does the world need another melody?
On Raw Honey, his second album as Drugdealer, Michael Collins colors these existential conundrums with lush arrangements, memetic melodies, and a vulnerable tunefulness that tries to make sense of self-doubt and connected loneliness in our shared simulacra.
Drugdealer’s Raw Honey will be released on April 19, 2019 via Mexican Summer.
Jungle Green is a Chicago rock band whose sound pays homage to pop music from the second half of the twentieth century onward. The group consists of Andrew Smith, Alex Heaney, Adam Miller, Emma Collins, Vivian McCall, and Adam Obermeier. Their dismissal of genre can be compared to the stylings of R. Stevie Moore. In the fall of 2017, the group recorded with producer Jonathan Rado at his Los Angeles Studio, Sonora Recorders. A year later, they supported the Lemon Twigs on a month-long nationwide tour.
