ARTHUR KING PRESENTS
A GRAPE DOPE:
BACKYARD BANGERS

A Grape Dope is the moniker of John Herndon, drummer, music producer, and founding member of the iconic musical group Tortoise. Herndon's debut solo album Backyard Bangers consolidates blasts of experimental hip hop beats, grinding lo-fi house grooves, clattering noise passages, and even subdued synth ambience into a concise and colorful 32 minute journey.

 

Album coming soon.

Listen to singles "Puppet Clubbing" and "Nod to the Peanuts"
