Ricky Eat Acid
Talk To You Soon
Out October 28th PREORDER NOW
Since 2009, the work of Baltimore musician/producer Sam Ray has swelled fearlessly, across multiple bands and projects, and beyond classification. Ricky Eat Acid, the primary and longest running among them, began as a collection of subdued bedroom sketches on bandcamp, first connecting with a devoted corner of the internet music community. Critical attention followed, notably with his 2014 LP, the haunting Three Love Songs, released on Orchid Tapes. Now Talk To You Soon arrives, via Brooklyn-based imprint Terrible Records, "at times cooing and ambient, other times Burially danceable," says The Fader. A highly ambitious record, it communicates an electronica that’s both euphoric and discordant—built with everything from strings (courtesy of Owen Pallett) to black metal (Wreck & Reference)—in a language fully its own.
