SCRANTON — At 9:30 p.m. May 7, electronic musician Quoth is celebrating the release of his sixth studio record, “The Jooks,” with an album release party at Irish Wolf Pub, 503 Linden Street, Scranton.
The new effort features collaborations with folk artist Katie Kelly of The Clamstompers and Umbriel on the track “Eyes Like Irene Dunne” and fellow electronic artist The Gary Goblins on the song “DemiGod.” In a press release from Hectic Management and Promotions, Quoth called his new album “a span of emotions dealing with happy to dark and everything in between.”
The album release party will feature DJ sets from Perfect Solution and Little.Plastic.Raleigh, who’ll both spin songs by artists who inspired Quoth. Lady Hectic will perform a set of live remixes of Quoth’s past hits and Quoth will headline the evening with a mixture of older tracks and debuts from “The Jooks.”
“The Jooks” will be available for download on Quoth’s Bandcamp page just before midnight May 7 with a pay-what—you-want format. Fans can expect special hidden items in the download. According the Hectic press release, “The Jooks” will showcase Quoth’s local inspirations and the album itself is dedicated to well-known artists who have passed.
