Kyp Malone Signs with Anti-

TV on the Radio's Guitarist/Singer Kyp Malone Signs with Anti- Records for Side Project

Kyp Malone by Eric Martin
Anti- Records, home to other musical visionaries such as Tom Waits, Neko Case and Nick Cave, is thrilled to announce the signing of Rain Machine, a startling new musical venture from Kyp Malone. "It's thrilling to hear this side of Kyp," says Anti- president Andy Kaulkin. "The songs are emotionally raw and passionate yet still experimental and full of surprises."

Malone, known to many as guitarist-singer for soulful art rockers TV On The Radio, explains the origin of Rain Machine: "I've been writing and recording songs alone since I moved to NYC in 2000, at first alone because I didn't know anyone, then through the years by choice because of a particular freedom that going it alone afforded. I've played regularly since then, at first under the name Black Lights until some kids in Texas told me they were already using that name. Then under my own name but I didn't like how 'Kyp Malone' looked on mock ups of t-shirts and fliers, thus Rain Machine."

Produced by Ian Brennan (Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Lucinda Williams, Jonathan Richman), Rain Machine's debut, set for release this fall, offers an enthralling mix of innovative song structure and sound entirely in service of Malone's emotive singing and evocative lyrics. Malone describes the Rain Machine sound as "a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear - a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined, some rhythm and some rhyme."

Stay tuned for more information coming soon from Rain Machine.
