Los Angeles experimental producer the Gaslamp Killer has unveiled a gritty, psychedelic new track, “Warm Wind (Frimpong),” off his upcoming LP, Instrumentalepathy.
With an effervescent bass and shuffling drums, Gaslamp Killer maintains a steady, spacey groove, leaving plenty of room for guest guitarist Amir Yaghmai to unravel an increasingly kaleidoscopic solo that lures the cut right up to the edge of the surreal.
“‘Warm Wind’ is one of the most uplifting songs on Instrumentalepathy, blending music from Ghana and Mali with one of the deepest one-take guitar solos in GLK history by Amir Yaghmai that turns into a runaway African freight train of a song!” Gaslamp Killer tells Rolling Stone.
The Gaslamp Killer will release Instrumentalepathy on September 16th via his own Cuss Records imprint. Along with Yaghmai, the album boasts an array of guests including Gonjasufi, Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Kid Moxie, Mophono and more.
Instrumentalepathy follows the Gaslamp Killer’s 2012 debut LP, Breakthrough, and his 2015 live album, The Gaslamp Killer Experience: Live in Los Angeles. The LP also marks the experimental producer’s first studio effort since suffering a near-fatal accident while riding his scooter.
