Track premiere: Viking Moses “Clown School”

Brendon Massei, aka Viking Moses, has been writing, recording music since he was a teenager. He’s toured with Deer Tick, Scout Niblett and Nat Baldwin of the Dirty Projectors. Strongly lyrical, his songs are played out through tunes that flirt with pop, soul and Americana, all strung together with a unique pulsing guitar, and by Massei’s robust voice, which ebbs from delicate whispers to throaty howls.  This track is from the new split 7″ from our good friends at Song, By Toad which also features the track “Oxygen” by Sam Goodwill who accompanied Viking Moses on his recent tour – there are more tour dates coming up listed below.
