Biography

Kosmik Leprechaun (aka The Song Cycle, Kisama!, Kosmische Clutharachán, etc.) is the main pet-project of the American musician, artist and engineer Josh McCurdy and has been active since 1995. KL composes everything from non-rhythmic experimental chaos, to precisely programmed electronica, to ambient psychedelia and various forms of rock. Each album varies stylistically from the one previous, with the majority of his music published via his own label Completely Gone Recordings.
