Paper & Plastick - FREE DOWNLOAD SUBSCRIPTION ISSUE NO. 90 GREETINGS FROM... DENZIL A.K.A.

"A few months ago we put out an open call to bands from all over the world to submit music for our subscription series.  We hand picked them all and I hope you guys enjoy them as much as we do!
Today we have some sweet ass stoner/alternative or whatever you wanna call it all the way from Larne, UK.  Denzil A.K.A. is apparently one dude that goes by Smout.  He writes and performs everything minus the drums.  This stuff is really spacey and has one of the best bass tones.  Also, Smout’s vocals are haunting to say the least.  He apparently played in the band K.C. and the Moonshine band as well?  This guy seems awesome.
Denzil A.K.A. released their first EP late last year and hopefully will be hitting the road soon?
If you like what you hear, you can download the tracks below and head on over to their bandcamp/website if you want the whole shebang!"
