The multi-instrumentalist inches closer to his dreamlike full-length debut.
Debut records are sometimes met by a level of nervousness and predetermined expectation that at times can make or break a release. The musical prowess of LA-based JOE WONG appears unaffected by any of the mentioned elements as he approaches his debut Nite Creatures with sheer confidence, as evident in the dynamic structure and free-flowing nature of the 10-track outing . Today, he shares a melodic new single In The Morning featuring Steven Drozd (THE FLAMING LIPS) ahead of the album's September 18 release via Decca Records.
JOE WONG comments on the single:
“This song features special guest Steven Drozd, joining me on guitar and stereo drums (he in one speaker, me in the other). Steven’s work with The Flaming Lips is a huge influence; I still remember buying ‘The Soft Bulletin’ on CD at Newbury Comics in Boston and listening in awe until the AA batteries in my Discman died. What a genius! We recorded Steven’s parts in Milwaukee Howl Street Recordings with the amazing Shane Hochstetler.”
