Ducky Offers Two Free Singles for Download From The Whether EP

I have a confession to make.  I’ve become a cynic, living in the perpetual doubt that I will ever find an artist that truly moves me.  This fatalistic sense of bitterness especially applies to electronic music which tends to edge toward obscurity in the quest for ambience or edginess. 

In spite of this admittedly self-defeating attitude, my interest was piqued when I heard of Ducky (aka Morgan Neiman) and her self-described brand of coke-binge space pop.  I  wasn’t sure what “coke-binge space pop” could possibly sound like so I headed off to YouTube to watch the video for Ducky’s introductory single “Killing Time”, which was produced by Dingo Dog and directed by Waverly Mandel.

I was immediately impressed by the clarity and rich timbre of Ducky’s voice and I really enjoyed this witty video too.  It is a lot of fun! 

I then listened to “Like Rain” with its surreal, disjointed beats and ethereal vocals and I found the tracks “Your Ever After” and “Dust” on Ducky’s previous releases Killing Time / Your Ever After and The Glamorous Gutter EP.  I was finally getting a clear idea of what Ducky was all about (and what coke-binge space pop might actually be).  With her slick production and versatility, Ducky is is surely on the verge of stratospheric success.

The San Franciscan-born artist has been making music since she was 13, playing alongside such artists as Japanther, Ninjasonik, and Roxy Cottontail. She left school at 16 to attend NYU’s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music.

She is releasing The Whether EP on February 21, 2012 and is offering two free downloads to mark the release.

  1. I confess I'm also a cynic in that regard, but it is fun to keep looking! THanks for the links, I'll check these out!

    1. Hey Brent! I have learned to listen carefully to people's music recommendations because it is how I discovered the Gutter Twins last year! I see that Mark Lanegan has a new album out! The review in our local paper was really good.
