BLARF, who may or may not be Eric Andre, releases debut album (listen)
BLARF, who may or may not be Eric Andre, recently shared the "Badass Bullshit Benjamin Buttons Butthole Assassin" song/video off his upcoming Stones Throw debut album Case & Desist, and now the whole album is here. Like that first single, it's a collage of samples that sounds like Adult Swim meets The Avalanches. Most of the songs are very short (some are a minute or less), but there's also a 12+ minute noise track called "I Worship Satan." I haven't made out all the samples, but one is definitely Jimi Hendrix. Listen to the whole album below.
BLARF celebrates the new album with an LA show on July 6 with Stones Throw labelmates Peanut Butter Wolf, J Rocc, Gary Wilson, and more. Eric Andre says, "People are confusing this guy BLARF on @stonesthrow for me! Let’s go to his show and see what the fuck is going on here!"
Meanwhile, Eric Andre is going on the "Legalize Everything" tour this year (including a recently announced Kings Theatre show) and playing Adult Swim Fest with Dethklok, Vince Staples, Jamie xx, Captain Murphy, Geto Boys, and many others.
