Height With Friends – “I Can’t Stand To Be Refused” (Stereogum Premiere)
Dan Keech, who records as Height, has been floating around Baltimore’s underground rock scene and making oblique and heartfelt rap music for a long time now; I wrote this profile on Dan and his friend Bow N’ Arrow eight years ago. Later this summer, Keech and his crew Height With Friends will release the new album Rock And Roll, and he’ll follow that up by touring with Dan Deacon all this fall. “I Can’t Stand To Be Refused,” the first thing we’ve heard from the album, is a fiery banger built from psych-guitar loops, and you can download it below.
Rock And Roll is out 8/14 on Friends/Cold Rhymes.
