Rollin Hunt : The Phoney

L.A. via Chicago songwriter Rollin Hunt has spent most of the last few years working as a successful film-maker and production designer, but he’s still managed to find time to record hundreds of tracks of weirdo pop and – as he calls it – “savant-garde doo-wop”, amassing something of a cult following and even inspiring a tribute album featuring covers of his songs by fans from around the world. The Phoney, out April 30 via Moniker Records, is his debut LP proper and features eleven ambitious, experimental nuggets that sit somewhere between Ziggy Stardust,  Todd Rundgren’s ’70s productions and Insignificance-era Jim O’Rourke. Check out “In The Window” below, then head over to The Chicago Reader, where the album is premiering.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
