Artists like Vermont’s King Tuff don’t just play rock n roll - they personify it. Showcasing a smattering of bewitching jewels from his 2014 Sub Pop release, Black Moon Spell, King Tuff and his band clog up the pores of the KEXP live room with the dirty sound that rock purists have been jonesing for. Live, Tuff shreds his guitar and sings with the same exhilarating intensity that would mirror the consequences of pouring too much sugar into Daniel Johnston’s Kool-Aid. Watch the entire set, full of high strung hooks and catchy melodies, and rock out to this raw and royal approach to sophisticated songwriting.
