Kyle Craft and his backing band Showboat Honey provide a glam-tastic Bowie-esque joyride, full of meaty Stones riffs and sprinkled with caustic soda lyrics that a true Dylan devotee has processed and posted from the heart.

Hitching a ride with a Portland garage band Iggy & The Stooges would be proud and loud about, Showboat Honey demonstrates an artist who has dealt all his best and worst cards with an album that plumbs the dark depths but also explodes with ecstasy. It’s all sealed with Kyle’s searing, sneering 21st century vox. Kyle Craft might be 2 Ugly 4 NY, as the latest single proclaims, but he sounds pretty cool surfing a riptide in this Sub Pop special.
