Following 2015’s Teaspoon to the Ocean (Domino/Weird World) & IV (2014, Burger Records), Pay 2 Play is the 3rd collection of songs from multimedia psychedelic artist Jib Kidder.
A casual but charged selection of simple songs that plant something new and unsettling in the fertile dirt of the past.
Features fresh takes on Bach, Tori Amos & Beat Happening.
RIYL Lindsey Buckingham, and Roger Miller. This deluxe edition comes with an exclusive second cassette of additional cover songs that fit perfect with Pay 2 Play.
Tracks 1-12 (Pay 2 Play)
