Deeply rooted in samples from a pocket recorder, Junk Culture is an infectious pop project from Oxford Mississippi's Deepak Mantena. Transforming the captured audio with studio instrumentation and bold vocals, Deepak mashes together street recordings with a fertile imagination.
With a full-length album in the works, Hang Roxy is the latest sample-built, pop-inspired release from Junk Culture. The two tracks were mixed by Chester Gwazda, producer behind previous releases from Dan Deacon and Future Islands. Deepak took the collaborative spirit into the studio for Hang Roxy. Side A features Jana Hunter (Lower Dens) and Side B features Sarah Barthel (Phantogram).
