Ky "Power Is The Pharmacy" LP (2023)
Details: Ky "Power Is The Pharmacy" LP (2023, Constellation). Super amazing new project by Ky Brooks from art-punk and Canadian experimental and heavy noise (former) Montreal group, Lungbutter (which also featured the brilliant human bean, friend and helper to so many, brightest star and music champion--the late, lovely, Joni Sadler). Just buy it. New stock, sealed. 180g vinyl pressing.
Description: "Ky is the new "solo" project of Ky Brooks, best known as vocalist/lyricist of noise trio Lungbutter and a slew of other Montréal-based out-music projects like 8-person queer punk band Femmaggots and experimental/improv trio Nag. Power Is The Pharmacy is an album of cerebral and visceral art-punk "mainly about grief, death, the fear of loss, losing dreams, losing youth, people, public space, ultimately oneself" — an emotionally electrifying collection of songs fuelled by Ky's piercing poetry, both spoken and sung, delivering an incisive blend of socio-political observation and spiritual sadness, swirling through vortices of disenchantment and re-enchantment."
