Rain Machine, a solo project from TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, follows up “Give Blood,” with the latest song from his new album (self-titled), “Smiling Black Faces.” The song has a blue-grass feel to it mixed with a little bit of rock. It combines political and personal aspects of his life (so it seems) to create powerful lyrics. You can also see how strong of the vocalist he is throughout – definitely a force to be reckoned with in the future.
Malone said Rain Machine was, “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.”
Super excited for the much-anticipated album, which is out September 22 via Anti. Not only did he create the music, he also created all the artwork himself.
