City Slang: Jamaican Queens at Lager House
The Jamaican Queens will perform at PJ’s Lager House on Tuesday, July 23. Doors are at 9, cover is $5, and the bill is completed by Sean Nicholas Savage and Ritual Howls.
According to a press release, “Jamaican Queens has been on the road for the greater part of this year behind their new album, 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.
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’ve performed with MS MR, Javelin, and Dustin Wong, among others, and KCRW’s been playing their single ‘Kids Get Away,’ which has been praised by Vice/Noisey, NYLON, Interview Magazine, MTV, Paper, Filter, Impose and more.”
