Through The Yard - Kauf
Ever since we visited Los Angeles, our spiritual home, last summer we've been hooked on the Santa Monica radio station KCRW and in particular the show Morning Becomes Eclectic, which is a cult institution over there (it famously provided David Chase with most of the soundtracks for The Sopranos). Capturing a dreamy yet melancholic atmosphere which evokes the city so well, the show has sustained us through another bleak London winter.
So we were thrilled to see Kauf, one of our favourite new Los Angeles artists, getting his single premiered last week on Morning Becomes Eclectic and making it into the overall KCRW top ten with 'Through The Yard'. It's taken from his album Regrowth which will be released later this year but the single is available now from Kauf's Bandcamp page and all digital stores and streaming services from March 11th.
For anyone new to Kauf's distinctive and soulful sound, do check out his debut single 'Relocate' (which includes a stunning Psychemagik remix) as well as his remixes for Labyrinth Ear and Public Service Broadcasting. He'll also be playing live in Los Angeles later this month too. Let's hope that KCRW and others will put 'Through The Yard' on heavy rotation over the next few weeks.
