Sad Eyed Beatniks


The man. The myth. The DIY legend.

Hailing from San Francisco, California, Kevin Percy Linn is Sad Eyed Beatniks, a lo-fi twee pop/folk rock/post-punk/synthpop multi-instrumentalist virtuoso and the should-be poster boy for do-it-yourself, not only playing every instrument himself and recording, mixing, and mastering himself, but releasing all of Sad Eyed Beatniks projects on his own label, Paisley Shirt Records. Until now. For the first time, Sad Eyed Beatniks will see release on another label, and we’re absolutely honored to be that label. What’s the project? You’ll know soon enough.

In the meantime, check out Sad Eyed Beatniks’ newest, Music From Big White:
