Cyrus Gengras – “Other Side”

Cyrus Gengras – “Other Side”

Fuckin’ Up My Name is a pretty funny album title when your name is Cyrus Gengras. People probably fuck that name up all the time. But mispronunciations and misspellings might be less of a problem for the LA singer-songwriter moving forward because the guy is very good at what he does, and folks are starting to notice — folks like you!

Gengras plays in the touring bands for both Jessica Pratt and Kevin Morby, and his music exists on a similar retro folk-rock plane, although Kurt Vile and Real Estate might be better reference points. “Other Side,” for instance, is an easygoing glide built from guitar strums and a wash of dreamy keyboard chords, topped off with a few twangy guitar leads and Gengras’ brightly chirping voice. Listen below.

Fuckin’ Up My Name is out 9/16 on cassette via Death Records. Pre-order it here.
