Ellery James Roberts was the frontman of the now defunct band Wu Lyf. While the rest of the band has moved on to form Los Porcos, Ellery James Roberts has apparently gone solo. He shared a song called “Kerou’s Lament” on his tumblr today.
He produced and song the song during the “lonesome London spring.” “Kerou’s Lament” features sample from Lil B’s “I Am God” and Clams Casinos “Planetary Initiation.”
It’s an expansive song that is most easily described as if Ellery found himself fronting Sigur Ros. He gives arguably one of his most powerful emotional vocal performance yet, as if it’s a grand statement about everything that’s been going on, and this is his well needed release.
