Suicideyear announces his latest project, Hate Songs. The EP is due July 28th via LuckyMe and will be the producer’s first EP since 2014’s Remembrance. To coincide with the announcement, Suicideyear shares the lead single, “Lagniappe (Spring Hate).”
Hate Songs was recorded between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana. The six track project showcases his continued development as an exciting young producer at the forefront of futurist rap. The tracks glisten with sharpness; from the warmth of “Summer Hate” to the club-oriented “Mosh Mosh” and “Spent Days Watching Horses Die.” Each song, a unique reflection of the artist’s experiences and challenges over the course of a calendar year in his home state. It’s “for listening on I-55 to New Orleans from Hammond.” cites Prudhomme.
Fresh off a North American tour supporting Jacques Greene, Suicideyear debuted a new live performance at Sonar in Barcelona on June 17th.
More about Suicideyear:
Suicideyear aka James Prudhomme hails from the home of No Limit Records – Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His sound is indebted to his environment – menacing tuned 808 drums coupled with angst-ridden emotive synth work – inspired by early shoegaze and punk bands throughout his formative teenage years. First coming to attention via his split single with Kaytranada on Bromance in 2013, he followed with the highly praised Remembrance EP on Oneohtrix Point Never’s Software label alongside a vinyl reissue of his 2013 beat tape Japan.
LuckyMe first met Prudhomme whilst on tour with S-Type in the Louisiana – leading to numerous collaborations including a stellar reworking of Jacques Greene’s ‘After Life After Party’ and joining the crews SXSW showcases and numerous other live events.
