B-Sides: Super Duper Kyle

It could be argued that Super Duper Kyle is ushering a new era of West Coast rap. Sure, his style is a bit like Drake, especially when you factor in the infectious pop viability of his rhymes. But this chill beach boy from Ventura offers a sort of sunny, relaxed sound that transports you immediately oceanside. A self-proclaimed nerd, he's not afraid to add in textures that sound as welcome in his own songs as they would broken down and pieced into Ocarina of Time. Somehow it all fits together, though, coalescing into the bright, '80s-vibed 2015 release Smyle—a name that immediately alludes to the ultra-posi mentality of the 20-something dude who made it.

You can bask in the light of this quickly rising star at The Rock (136 N. Park Ave.) on Saturday, April 9. The show kicks off at 8 p.m. with local artists Cash Lansky, Ripdee, Johnny Redd, Marley B, Jaca Zulu and more opening the show. Tickets ($16 advance, $18 day of) and more information are available at www.rocktucson.com. It is an all-ages event.
