Ryley Walker x Kikagaku Moyo - 'Deep Fried Grandeur', live at Le Guess Who? 2018
Chicago-based songwriter and guitarist Ryley Walker and Japanese psych-rockers Kikagaku Moyo gave a special collaborative performance at Le Guess Who? 2018. Now, the artists release the recordings of that show called ‘Deep Fried Grandeur’; two lengthy, kaleidoscopic jams featuring a revolving cast of folk jazz, acid rock, and psychedelia in a heavy-improv setting.
'Deep Fried Grandeur' was recorded live at De Helling in Utrecht during Le Guess Who? 2018. The album is released digitally and as a limited edition LP (black and orange wax) via Ryley Walker’s own label Husky Pants.
The album is produced and mixed by Cooper Crain; the audio was recorded by Don Funcken and Marc Broer; and the LP was mastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering, Boston, MA.
