Whatever it is I Am Korny got in exchange for his soul at the crossroads: his new album 'Sleep Ain’t Paying My Dues' released last Friday, and today's Track Of The Day, speaks of a very striking bargain. The phantoms and the dreamers, the heroes, and the villains, the brave and the desperate all find their home in his songs. His is the music of an outlaw perceiving his otherness, not as a burden but a crown. Thus, every maverick since the dawn of Rock ’n’ Roll is walking by his side. Just like Nick Cave, like the Black Keys or Alberta Cross, I Am Korny is distilling the American dream and the American nightmare, the promises of the West, and the myth of that endless land into murder ballads about the underbelly of love.
