“A Single Green Light” challenges what’s expected to come from New York. Sonically it twists elements of vogue, house, and late 90’s indie rap, beneath an overarching aura of downtown after midnight. But lyrically it’s a concept driven record inspired by F. Virtue’s husband and The Great Gatsby. Themes include dissatisfaction, mortality, longing, hope, nightlife, love, America, wealth, and memory, all wrapped up into a symbollic 7 songs (his husbands lucky number) and 22 minutes (he and his husband met on a 22nd, and were married on a 22nd). It is self produced, and features no other rappers or producers.
The sole physical release of this record is on a limited custom hydra-printed lanyard with USB key handloaded and numbered / 100. The lanyard contains the album in high quality .wav files, the instrumentals, digital liner notes, and the album’s digital .gif release cover, and is available exclusively through Manhattan's La Petite Mort: bit.ly/1GiyoOG
