Our 28th Artist of the Week is American singer, songwriter and producer Hung Yung Terrarist. Based in Los Angeles, her music has a unique brand and is heavily influenced by her theatre experience (or is it vice versa?).
Her first 3 albums were self-produced and likened by critics to Coco Rosie, F.K.A. twigs and Grimes, while her 4th and most recent record was a collaboration with Darryl Swann and K-Embry, and an homage to old school Hip Hop.
Have a listen to One Stop Mop from her new, self titled record, released on November 1, presented in this picture disk Soundposter:
While Terra’s music does already sound visual, she drags her art a step further with her one woman show “Terra Is A Warm Gun,” a non-linear collection of songs, poems, stories, and monologues, that came to life in September 2015 under the theatrical direction of Zombie Joe at Zombie Joe’s Underground Theater in North Hollywood. She has been working on turning the show into a short film with director William Morrison since, and the first excerpt is currently available on Youtube under the title “Shoulda Gone to An Ivy League.”
