With a studio guest list that includes honorary members of Smoking Popes, BoDeans, Off Broadway, Robbie Fulks’ band, NRBQ and Lupe Fiasco, the new LP from Chicago’s King Mixer has arrived. King Mixer is both musical ensemble and performing alias of songwriter Eric Howell, who fronts a sound that is at once “equal parts Paul McCartney and Paul Simon backed by R.E.M.” (Audities Powerpop Fanzine). At a moment when guitar bands are fighting for a place in modern music, King Mixer and producer Christian Cullen offer up deliberately backdated sounds with a postmodern flare, which become harder to pin down with each genre-defying twist. And there are many quick turns.
