San Francisco’s Kid Mud (aka Sean Duncan) makes good on his debut LP Now They Shut Us Down out today on New and Used Records. I loved his home recorded, one man band solo EP, Birds Will Move In, juxtaposing bleeps and bloops with acoustic longing. For Now They Shut Us Down, he keeps his independent recording flair but takes it up a notch with a host of collaborators, backing vocals and full-fledged recording studio. The result is a set of richly layered, finely crafted indie rock songs. Sparklehorse fans this is right up your alley.
San Francisco fans can catch Kid Mud play the Mission’s El Rio June 17.
