Remember that line from Charlie Day in Going The Distance, "Look, I thought it'd be fun if I DJed your hookup!"? Well forget Charlie, I want Sam Ray to play DJ.
Under Chill Mega Chill Records, Sam Ray is the man behind Ricky Eat Acid. The label and band name sort of give away what Ricky Eat Acid is. However, there is more to it than just chillness. Sam adds hooky vocals, downbeats, and an extra touch of rawness into his ambient jams. The blithe flow of his instruments are sometimes surprising but that's how you know Sam has a knack for this.
Ricky Eat Acid's entire Haunt U Forever EP is on Bandcamp for only $5, go check it out. In addition, give his newest track "Only Girl" a listen. It has a grimy Sleep ∞ Over vibe that I am completely head over heels for.
