Rapper, producer, filmmaker, writer, and humorist The Koreatown Oddity aka Dominique Purdy never seems to stop hustling to bring his visions to life, from slanging his cassettes hand to hand around Los Angeles to writing and starring in videos and films. He recently released Aggro Crag, an oddball maxi-single based on making art on a shoestring.
Today, The Koreatown Oddity has dropped new song “Misophonia Love” is a tongue in cheek love song about him and his girl who has misophonia. A voiceover at the end of the song explains the condition: “Living with misophonia is similar to living with tinnitus, when repeated sounds can become so annoying that you feel enraged, triggered by specific sounds like eating, breathing, typing and coughing.” Ktown says: “After you listen to the song Google Misophonia. Then listen to the song again.”
“MISOPHONIA LOVE” is out digitally on its own and via a limited run of cassettes featuring two bonus songs. The digital single artwork was drawn by his girlfriend’s grandmother, Fran Dufelmeier, in 1943, who celebrated her 100th birthday in March. The cassette maxi single artwork was done by her granddaughter Skyler Dufelmeier.
