Punk legend and X co-founder John Doe has spent decades building a career that spans across various genres and even formats, with dozens of acting credits in film and TV. Particle Kid is the musical identity of singer-songwriter, musician, and visual artist Micah Nelson, who – despite his young age – has an equally impressive resume. On this split release, the two artists cover each others’ tunes with their own interpretation. As a bonus, John Doe covers a Carter Family favorite, and Particle Kid covers outsider folk hero Michael Hurley. The release was mastered at 45RPM by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed on a 12" smoke color LP at Pallas Group in Germany.
PARTICLE KID marks the first full-length release from Particle Kid, the experimental musical identity of Los Angeles-based musician and visual artist J. Micah Nelson. The album sounds both familiar and oddly modern, with the spirits of future folk, funk, rock, lysergic Americana, and progressive jazz fusion all somehow woven together with deep-rooted melodies, unique improvisational elements, and remarkably intricate arrangements.
