Vermont singer-songwriter Kyle Thomas specializes is bright, brash, and summery rock 'n' roll with a strong garage vibe. I first ran into the guy when made his Sub Pop Records debut with his band Happy Birthday. I wasn't in love with the album, but what great moments there were on that album were great. Too great to simply brush Thomas under the rug
Sub Pop is continuing to support this guy by putting out his latest solo record under the name King Tuff. The guy has been putting out material under this name for a while, and the sound quality seems to be upped on this new track to drop from the album, "Bad Thing."
Thomas brings the same youthful energy, though, progressing the track through vulnerable verses, grunge choruses, and an ear-piercing guitar solo.
