Kweller is an indie-rock artist from Texas who’s been putting solo material out since 2002 after a stint in his alt rock band Raddish. He’s been on tour with a ton of people, including Evan Dando, a bit of a hero of mine. Which makes me slightly ashamed that I didn’t come across his music a bit earlier.
‘Heart Attack Kid’ is from his forthcoming sixth (I think) solo record due out this year. I really like it. It reminds me a little bit of the stuff I like by Kurt Vile, Welles, Bass Drum of Death. They all inhabit the same musical space anyway it seems to me. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the album, definitely.
