Former WU LYF frontman Ellery Roberts Releases New Song: ‘Kerou’s Lament’

25 Jun

WU LYF may be no more, but its ex-members are still pursuing other creative endeavours. Drummer Joe Manning, bassist Tom Mclung, and guitarist Evans Kati have notably joined together to form Los Porcos, while their former frontman Ellery Roberts has contended himself with lingering in the shadows.

Things did not end well for WU LYF, who amassed a flurry of followers made up of critics and casual listeners alike after releasing Go Tell Fire To The Mountain in June of 2011. In late 2012, Roberts uploaded a final track on Youtube entitled ‘TRIUMPH’ 9that has since been removed) and cryptically wrote: “WU LYF is dead to me” (full quote after the jump)

Roberts has remained relatively quiet since then, but his morning he posted a song called “Kerou’s Lament” on Tumblr.

The stunningly uplifting 6-minute number includes samples from Lil B, Clams Casino, and Daniel Pinchbeck. In a tongue-in-cheek manner, Roberts notes that “all samples used with love & no permission.”

Take a listen below, and let’s hope there is more music to come.
