On August 22, American post-R&B phenomenon, singer, producer and fresh XL Recordings signee Marcus Brown, aka Nourished by Time will perform at Paavli Culture Factory, presenting his new EP along with music from his breakout debut Erotic Probiotic 2.

Brown recorded his critically-acclaimed first album in his parents’ Baltimore basement, but you wouldn’t know that by listening to it—Erotic Probiotic 2 has the timeworn air of a record that took years to make and which spans several generations and a multitude of worlds. It’s a love letter to everything from synth-pop to ‘90s R&B to electronica, with rap rhymes, trip-hop beats and melodies that would make TLC jealous.

Since debut release last spring, Brown has landed loads of new fans, critical acclaim, cross-the-pond tour dates, and a freshly inked deal with XL Recordings under which he just recently, on May 3rd released his latest EP. Named Catching Chickens, it is derived from the film Rocky, and the iconic scene in which Rocky’s trainer makes him chase and catch a flock of chickens as a test of agility.

Expanding upon Erotic Probiotic 2’s sprawling, singular universe while also hinting at new sounds, shapes, and textures, the album contemplates the fall of the American empire and late-stage capitalism loneliness, while also tracing the paranoia from distrust in a post-traumatic world. With that, Nourished By Time chronicles his own test of agility as he weaves through the motions of his newfound notability.

We are more than thrilled to invite him to our stage at dawn of summer to give the prettiest of seasons a proper and soulful sendoff.
