“The King’s Wig” by So Stressed

Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day' is "The King's Wig" by So Stressed, new album 'Please Let Me Know' out February 17 on Ghost Ramp

So Stressed recently announced their signing to Ghost Ramp, along with the release of a 7″, and now they’re pleased to announce details of a new full-length, Please Let Me Know. So Stressed have also shared the first single from the album, “The King’s Wig.”

Unlike their 2015 album, The Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art, which took two and a half years to write and record, Please Let Me Know was written in less than a year and then quickly recorded, mixed and mastered by their friend Pat Hills at Earth Tone Studio.

“As far as making the record, we were definitely less focused on a specific sound when we were writing this,” explains So Stressed’s Morgan Fox. “We wanted the last one to be cold and digital sounding and really harsh to listen to, which I think it is. This one is pretty harsh too, but we also allowed ourselves to kind of do whatever we wanted as long as all three of us liked it and it was fun to play. Ugly noise is cool, but so is melody.”

So Stressed initially began in Sacramento, CA as a largely improvisational noise project that included the band’s three members (Morgan Fox, Andrew Garcia and Kenneth Draper). Their new album, Please Let Me Know, will be released by Ghost Ramp on Feb. 17, 2017.
