City Slang: Jamaican Queens at Trinosophes

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 9:48 PM

Jamaican Queens will host a record release show at Trinosophes this coming Friday, April 12.

They say, “They've been on tour through SXSW in support of Wormfood, which was deeemed "The Coolest Debut Album of 2013" by The L Magazine. Ryan Spencer and Adam Pressley (formerly of the band Prussia) teamed up to record last winter, mixed by Christopher Lazlo Koltay (Akron/Family, Dirtbombs). The fusion of Ryan's melodies and Adam's knowledge of underground music and production has given way to their "odd pop" sound, influenced by the southern rap beats of Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane, and Young Jeezy, as well as the experimentation of Brian Eno and Lee Scratch Perry. They sold out their first NY show last month and KCRW's been playing their single 'Kids Get Away,' which has been praised by Vice/Noisey, Paper, Filter, Impose and more.”
