I was quite surprised when scrolling my SoundCloud feed that a new album from Bear Club frontman Tom Richman was streaming. The often quiet music producer has been busy making a name for himself in the DJ arena, traveling coast to coast bringing his upbeat energetic sound everywhere he goes. Last time I saw Richman he was standing on top of the Meta Hi-Fi sound system at Niche, and the music was so intense it was literally making the floorboards bend.
His new album, Outlier, brings a different type of sound than what I've come accustom to from Tom. It's industrial and electronic, with very close attention to detail. Playing it in my car it demanded my attention from start to finish.
Paired with the 7 track project is a video for AWOL. Check them both out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
