Michael Madden

As King Tuff, garage-rocker Kyle Thomas wields stomping, Stooges-like chords that match the attitude of his lyrical sneers of "Baseball, football: too many rules." He's a low-key beast on guitar, with riffs sounding like measures of solos, and he's willing to experiment lately — even collaborating with Brooklyn hip-hop producer Harry Fraud. His second album on Sub Pop, Black Moon Spell, is heavier than 2008's Was Dead or 2012's King Tuff — he even outright titled a song "Headbanger." It also shows patches of graceful, nuanced songwriting, including the sardonic Magnetic Fields nod "I Love You Ugly" and the fluffy indie pop of "Staircase of Diamonds" — which doesn't end without Thomas clawing in with ample six-string noise. With Cassie Ramone. 18+. (Photo by Dan Monick)
