Kid Mud Signs to N&UR


New and Used Records is proud to announce the signing of Kid Mud from San Francisco. On October 7, N&UR will digitally release Kid Mud's new EP, Birds Will Move In. Sean Duncan - the brainchild behind Kid Mud - recorded Birds in his humble home recording studio, playing each instrument himself (his sister contributes background vocals to one track). A self-taught musician, Duncan's songs vary in styles from the more indie rock "Number 12 Looks Like You" to the slow and melancholy "Press It Out." Far from just a singer/songwriter, there is lush instrumentation, not to mention computer blips and beats, recalling the work of Badly Drawn Boy, Sparklehorse and Broken Social Scene.

Prior to Kid Mud, Duncan played in a number of bands including Fiver, American Holidays, and Duncan Booth. Along the way he has shared bills with the likes of Calvin Johnson, Death Cab For Cutie, Earlimart, and Frank Black of the Pixies. Head over to Kid Mud's MySpace to stream three new songs, as well as a cover of "Be My Baby."

Kudos on another addition to the N&UR family!

Currently listening to some of his songs via Myspace...must say I'm really enjoying them. Very much so. Look forward to more stuff. Big fan of the cover art too!
