Rain Machine (Kyp Malone Solo) New Album, Tour Dates (Bell House)

Rain Machine

The record release party for Kyp Malone‘s (TV On The Radio) new solo project, Rain Machine, will take place on September 21 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show go on sale August 25 (today) at noon.

Kyp Malone‘s much anticipated solo project Rain Machine is set to be released September 22 on Anti-records. The provocative album art, created by Malone himself, is an appropriate indicator of the unique and defiantly personal music within. Rain Machine features ten unflinchingly original and emotional songs mixing elements of modern jazz, blue-grass and blistering guitar driven rock into a refreshing new sound. As singer and guitarist for celebrated band TV on the Radio, Malone proved himself both a captivating and delightfully unpredictable musical force. On Rain Machine, he shows himself a singer and a lyricist of startling talents. Malone recently described Rain Machine as “a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear, a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined – some rhythm some rhyme.” In most instances such a statement could be dismissed as nothing more than playful hyperbole. This is not one of those times. Rain Machine is the sound of an extraordinary artist emerging into his own.
