8. “Piano Song” / NOAH RAY
Athens rock bible Flagpole recently called Noah a “rock god.” He certainly draws the worship of the region’s metalheads when fronting the outstanding metal-as-performance-art ensemble Music Hates You. We wanted to show you the OTHER side of Noah, the side that crafts memorable songs you’d swear would fit right in on a Tom Waits record. We coaxed this unreleased demo from his archives, and I’m personally happy it’s seeing the light of day.
