Soup of the Day #11: Dragon King- Altamont Sunrise

Dominic Angelella is a tall and lanky fellow with fire ant colored Jesus-hair and an unkempt beard, which is a perfect picture to paint of the man behind the divine vocals of Philadelphia based indie pop quartet, Dragon King.

The quarter lived singer and guitarist started Dragon King as a studio project with producer Ritz Reynolds. The project began as an exercise in collaboration and experimentation and evolved into a four piece band in late 2010. The band's first output, Warriors EP, is a tasty psychedelic-electro-pop sandwich with the upbeat tracks "Wolfboy" (ft. Peedi Crakk) and "Wild Night" serving as the crunchy toast and "Altamont Sunrise" and "Warriors" as the mouth watering meat.

The standout cut from the EP is, without a doubt, the anthem for planetary exodus, "Altamont Sunrise." The Ritz blitzed, Toro Y Moi-esque spaced out tapestry is the gravity between Angelella and his simplistic yet beautiful lyrics. The end product: cosmic.
