James Supercave celebrates the white vinyl indie-exclusive release of their new album Better Strange (Fairfax Recordings), with a live set and signing at Amoeba Hollywood. The CD and regular LP versions are out February 12th.
See them at Resident (downtown L.A.) February 11th.
It is not easy to know James Supercave. Their web presence is clipped and understated. Coming from a firm belief that the music speaks for itself, Supercave's debut album, Better Strange, is the only introduction they’ll allow.
Better Strange affirms Supercave as both figment and figurehead for a genre not yet defined, exploiting the edge of the pop idiom, cheating in psych-rock with thick, low end grooves normally reserved for funk and soul.
This is the hustle. In Better Strange, James Supercave is patent leather lounge singer on one track (“With You”) gone Bowie in the next (“The Right Thing.”) Aloof and glam-centric until moments of biting commentary, winking jabs at corporations (“Chairman Gou”) and frustrated anthems angled at the internet native (“Virtually a Girl”). Between nagging synth, shape shifting vocal timbre and lurching bass, the record is flecked with strange—but, as James Supercave proves, things are so much better strange.
Production-wise, Better Strange is glassy, but not manufactured thanks to the analog, “more room, less computer” ethos of Fairfax Recordings. Supercave’s debut LP, Better Strange, releases on February 12, 2016 via Fairfax Recordings.
