R.M.Hendrix


R.M Hendrix is the project of Boston graphic designer, Michael Hendrix, who has been crafting songs since founding indie rock band, Flannery, in 1998. Though the band disbanded in 2002, their songs have had staying power, and their inclusion on cable TV shows (Flipping Out and Emril's Planet Green). Since then his style has evolved from from nervous brit-pop to textured nugaze. About this new sound Hendrix says, "To be honest it was always the sound I wanted, but couldn't figure out because I didn't know how to make the textures. Read more on Last.fm

Though the band disbanded in 2002, their songs have had staying power, and their inclusion on cable TV shows (Flipping Out and Emril's Planet Green). Since then his style has evolved from from nervous brit-pop to textured nugaze. About this new sound Hendrix says, "To be honest it was always the sound I wanted, but couldn't figure out because I didn't know how to make the textures. Then I bought a Jazzmaster and that was it." Hendrix's most recent albums are held together by overdriven amps and sci-fi accents.

These distinct tonal foundations permitted Hendrix to celebrate influences from krautrock to ambient and still keep a cohesive collection. The songs come to life with Hendrix's personas (inspired by Bowie) to deliver the stories. This is showcased best on the twin-song center point of the LP, This Dreadful Mess called, "Global Affairs / Crack the Code", which builds a dialogue between the protagonist and his faceless antagonist. This Dreadful Mess emerged with a loose story arch about the day in the life of an agent code named, PCOCK. The story begins with a clue that sets the agent on a journey.

He's ultimately ensnared in his own game of cat and mouse and nearly executed. Miraculously he evades death, perhaps due to his own bravado. The songs on Super Mo, though recorded during the same sessions, materialized as a cohesive set about his personal muse and have a more upbeat tone. His latest single, "Summer Dresses" is an new version of track 3 from Super Mo, "Ivorine & Chai". Hendrix is currently recording a new EP that adds 60's garage/psychedelia to his sound.

It will be available in the Fall of 2012. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
