El Tryptophan

El Tryptophan premieres "Syntax Static" single + announced debut LP "Guilt Vacation"

El Tryptophan is the musical and visual project of Brooklyn based artist Gryphon Rue. The young man has at once folky and rather extreme experimental inclinations, and you'll find these two influences blended together in his upcoming debut album 'Guilt Vacation.' We are premiering here single "Syntax Static" (streaming below), a song about the relation between lust and communication based on an unusual two quarter drum pattern, that's regularly interrupted by choruses in four quarters that are - alternatively - sonically exploding and imploding. Like a more extreme Beck, Rue incorporates, constantly recycles and disposes of various sounds, genres and ideas, without ever venuring into pop territory, though. 'Guilt Vacation' will be released on November 20th. The release show is scheduled for November 18 at Trans Pecos.
