Show Notes

After a decade of work in Gainesville, Fla., FUNKILLER finally released his entrancingly lush sophomore album Tropical Depression, out now via LaunchLeft (streaming now, vinyl pre-order is up, too).

FUNKILLER is led by reclusive singer/songwriter David Gordon, who’s been championed by the likes of Wayne Coyne and Moon Unit Zappa, and his forthcoming album is a hypnotic blend of moody pop, neo-soul and ethereal rock ‘n’ roll. Guests on the LP include Rain Phoenix (Aleka’s Attic, Venus And The Moon, LaunchLeft) and Dave Lebleu (Mercury Program).

Listen to this episode to hear what inspires David to write, record ... and why it took over a decade to release his brand new LP.
