Stutterboy is back with his album, “Stutterboy ii,” which is making its official release this May 30th. This full-length album showcases a renaissance of 1980s Post-Punk and 1990s Psych rock, but is infused to create a more original sound. He also brings another long-gone yet widely hyped decade with the 1960s Northern Soul and West Coast Surf music. This whole amalgamation of music spans over ten tracks.
Throughout “Stutterboy II,” Stutterboy demonstrates a masterful command of a diverse musical palette. The album weaves layers of atmospheric synth textures reminiscent of the new wave era with the reverberating and melodic guitar lines of surf rock. The basslines drive the songs forward, providing a pulsating and percussive foundation, while the drums offer intricate rhythmic patterns that keep the listener engaged.
“Stutterboy II” takes the listener on a sonic journey and starts with “Be Less Embarrassing,” a rather melodic start to a groovy brooding album with its glimmering sounds and synths. This album has been made to feel as though you are in motion, be it rolling along on a long drive or walking in the rain. Even the wind beating against your body will feel cinematic as you listen to the hazy hues presented in “Stutterboy ii.”
Listen to “Stutterboy ii” by Stutterboy to get in the lazy mood to reflect on life and just relax, soaking in the broody atmosphere and lounging freely with Stutterboy’s hazy vocals and blended rock and shimmering instrumentals.
