Description

Cleansed of unnecessary baggage, Compulsion finds Kim Gray performing with the focus of a Shaolin Monk. Hes fanned the garage fumes that led his first act, The Skinny Kids, to a cult Canadian following and cleared the air with a stronger, yet more subtle sound. A metamorphosis that began to shape on last years Perfume, released on L.A.s Lollipop Records, Compulsion exhibits Kims artistry in full bloom as he perfects a pungent, new breed of bedroom pop. Folding vintage radios and toyish Casio soundbanks into live studio-quality compositions might sound like the wet teenage dream of Flying Lotus after too much of Can's Tago Mago, but we bet you our Bitcoin reserves that Compulsion holds its weight in dream currency. Peroxide Blondes shimmers with the mysticism of a midnight Michael McDonald serenade summoning the spirit of Bobby Fuller while the relaxed vibe of Whats In A Smile recalls a rum-induced impromptu beach session between Tom Ze and Kenny Loggins. Compulsion flows like a composite of uninterrupted REM sleep, but IRL, it follows Kim Gray on a path that confronts his loneliness and modern struggles. If you are searching for peace inside sex, drugs, memes, eating, money, television or internet dating, let Kim be your guide to happiness. "Kim Gray has reached a level of artistic maturity deserving of a lengthy tour with Mac DeMarco." - Exclaim!
