Idiot Glee’s debut album Paddywhack out June 7


The very much anticipated debut album from Idiot Glee has a name and a release date. Paddywhack will be out June 7 on Moshi Moshi. Idiot Glee is the solo work of James Friley and spawned from a 2008 flea market trip where Friley found The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds on cassette. “I listened to it probably 100 times over the span of a year,” says Friley. This year of the Beach Boy led Friley to make Idiot Glee a full time endeavor. Take a listen to his Daytrotter Session and catch him on tour at the dates below.
