Producer Idiot Glee

Kentucky's one man band conducts some lo-fi pop treats for Moshi Moshi

Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky is a one-man band also known as Idiot Glee or James Friley to his friends. Carefully crafted buzzing lo-fi melodies that are super laidback and chilled the hell out. 'All Packed Up', Idiot Glee’s debut single for the indie Moshi Moshi label combines simple keyboard lines and looped beats with Friley’s pop vocals, harking back to time of 50s diners and swinging skirts.
