Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring Is Releasing a Rap Album
Samuel T. Herring's little known alter-ego Hemlock Ernst has an album coming out. The hip-hop collaboration with producer Kenny Segal titled Back at the House is due this October 26 on Ruby Yacht. Today, we have the album's first single "Down."

Back in 2014, to everyone's delight, Hemlock Ernst emerged from the shadows. In recent years he's managed to collaborate with Earl Sweatshirt, JPEGMAFIA for a track called "Llama Mind," Scallops Hotel, and Australian rap troupe Curse Ov Dialect.
