VIDEO PREMIERE: CHAUCER “ICY WORLD”

June 20th, 2016

Here's a few unexpected minutes from Florida's home-taper Chaucer, with a slo-mo video and a whole lot of unfiltered human expression. On his older songs, he's doing the Dead Milkmen and Ariel Pink at the same time, but here on "Icy World" he catches something deeper and maybe even a little haunting, in a four-tracks-and-the-truth kinda way. His Iced album will be out July 1 on New Los Angeles, also home to the Koreatown Oddity, Walter Gross, AshTreJinkins, Remy Kay and more. You can pre-order here on iTunes and cassettes will hit July 1!
