Press Release:

Following in the footsteps of his 2010 release Beautiful Isolation, Chris Weeks brings us his latest Kingbastard opus 'Lost Property'; a concept album which draws its inspiration from happening upon an old abandoned house whilst walking in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, West Wales.

A more concise, but no less ambitious record than its predecessor, Lost Property primarily focuses inwardly on the house itself and its immediate surroundings. There are sixteen self-contained tracks, each meticulously depicting the different moods evoked upon discovery, exploration of, and departure from the property; however, each piece flows seamlessly into the next to form a picturesque, immersive and continuous soundscape, where fragile field-recordings, subtle spoken-word, and harmonious vocals rub shoulders with dusty micro-glitched grooves, retro synths, rich sub-bass, lo-fi landscapes and warped guitars; underscored with evolving, ethereal ambience.

Lost Property is the sound of Weeks' creative imagination in full flow; immediately enveloping the listener and never relenting, tracks segue effortlessly, unveiling a unique, genre-defying collage of beautifully crafted, descriptive sonic textures that honestly encapsulate the artist's experience and emotions.

Hi, my new EP 'Brainfunk' is officially released today, digitally via Herb Recordings & on Limited Edition CD & Mini CD.

For anyone interested in purchasing the digital version here's a discount code that entitles the user to 25% off the usual price: kbfunk

Listen in full & buy it now by visiting: kingbastardmusic.com

Press Release:

The Bastard is back! & this time he's serving up some glitch-infused, funk-flavoured treats for your delectation.

Brainfunk draws its sound & inspiration from Kingbastard fusing his unique brand of Electronica with the psychedelic, colourful stylings of smoky 70's funk records and their hypnotic, kaleidoscopic sounds. However, don't be fooled into thinking this is a 'sample-driven' work. The riffs & hooks found adorning these tracks are originals, written, performed & recorded by the bastard himself. (Ok, apart from the narration on track 3;)

Brainfunk showcases Kingbastard's penchant for melody, riffs & rhythm. The six tracks are an eclectic, funkadelic brew of multi-instrumental, home-grown sounds & arrangements.

'Brainstorm' kicks off proceedings with a brooding atmospheric intro and evolving, intertwining melodies, underscored with progressive percussion; the track crescendos with aplomb & is rounded off with an irresistibly catchy funk-glitch coda.
'I Caught the Sun' is sun-drenched lo-fi that shimmers & sparkles, glitches & glistens, before KB's playful side is fully exposed on the infectious & strangely informative 'KingBee's Waggle Dance'.
'The Sunshine Skank' fuses funk & glitch & is best served hot on a dub-plate, whilst 'Out To Lunch' kicks-back, takes a break & mellows the mood for the final track, the superb 'You Float My Boat', a slice of laid-back, smoky funk, with Kingbastard's deft production techniques, musicianship & vocal skills on show.

Brainfunk continues Kingbastard's stellar & diverse output on Herb Recordings & once again shows he transcends classification, refusing to be pigeonholed.

[Herb Recordings]

Hope you enjoy
