"Los Angeles artist Michael Collins (formerly of Run DMT, Salvia Plath) guides a group of Angelenos including Ariel Pink and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) through a whimsical world informed by Jean Baudrillard, social media perception, Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western vistas and Collins’s endless travels. ‘The End of Comedy’ is a collection of vignettes - lucid, lysergic and organic - featuring homespun explorations of Carole King­-esque piano ballads, Bacharach-ian orchestration, the psych-­folk of Ultimate Spinach and Hendrickson Road House and even New York City subway jazz, all pulled together by Collins’s deft AOR auteurship and keen sense of humour…" -- The Seventh Hex

His 2016 full-length The End of Comedy tightened the whirling daze of his earlier recordings into a focused, sophisticated pop record, earning its place among the coveted Subba HQ faves – no small feat given our general indifference for music. His art treads the line between the lucid and the lysergic..." -- Deva Rao
