RICKY EAT ACID “CONTEXT” OUT TODAY VIA CANVASBACK

Multi-instrumentalist and producer Sam Ray, known under the electronic moniker Ricky Eat Acid, today releases his first official single, “Context”, with Canvasclub, the new singles label from Canvasback!  The pop-ambient infused digital release also comes with the sublime B-side “Walking Through A Garden At Midnight” and offers listeners a glimpse of REA’s strong forge ahead into 2015, with a bold and beat-driven aesthetic that’s recognizably all his own.
REA came on the radar in 2014 with the lauded release, Three Love Songs (Orchid Tapes), that earned him feature the in FADER and one of Pitchfork’s Honorable Mentions for Best Albums of 2014.  A sonic composite of found sounds and live instrumentation, the prolific Baltimore-raised, now NYC-based REA combines intricate sonic collaging with beats and atmospheric meandering that at times elicit both dancing and somber emotional reflection.    Check out Ricky Eat Acid live – upcoming tour dates below – and stay tuned for updates as more music comes throughout 2015.
