I’M AN ELECTRIC WIZARD

i’m really fortunate be featured as the cover story of the latest issue of Electric City Magazine. not only did they do an extended piece on the face, but for the next little while they also have an exclusive premiere of my new forthcoming album, NØ FUTUR(E).

the album doesn’t come out until June 1st, but it’s gonna be dope. the physical release is a four-track 7″ (featuring a 12×18″ poster with art, lyrics, and liner notes on one side, and a playable 3D ouija board on the other, drawn by Robb Mirsky), and an extended 13-track digital mixtape. what more could you possibly want? chocolate? okay, maybe i’ll throw in some skull-shaped chocolate.

as for the piece, it’s a solid one. if yr a garbageface super fan, you may not learn many new details, but if you need a garbage refresher course, or are new to my work, this is pretty much all you need to read. for what it’s worth, i am humbled and honoured that they gave me the space, and somewhat confused as to why i deserve to be on the cover. but… it’s mega dope.
