hmv's Next Big Thing... #227 Jerkcurb
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you dreamy one-man-band Jerkcurb...
Who Is He?
Jerkcurb is the brainchild of Jacob Read. Once a member of Words Backwards and DIK OOZ, he's a frequent collaborator with King Krule, but is now making a name for himself in his own terms.
He's now signed to seriously cool label Handsome Dad Records, which is also home to Grace Lightman and JW Ridley. His debut album Air Con Eden will be with us in early September
What Does He Sound Like?
Read's sound is a trippy soul, blending psychedelia with 70s pop. Imagine Frank Zappa produced by The Weeknd, if you can...
Why Should I Be Excited?
Jerkcurb's sound is a sonic adventure. It's a strange, delicate bubble of noise, which you can float in for hours.
Can I Hear Something?
Totally. You can check out 'Timelapse Tulip' below...
