KLT- The Wow Song

Wow, it's gone already. Sorry.

If he were to hear The Wow Song today, Prince might wonder why he didn't release it as a single during his psychedelic pop phase in 1992. But KLT isn't one of Prince's pseudonymns; it's actually an alias of Kansas City-area musician Kenny Carter. Carter's eclectism and musical ambition may have contributed to his inability to find commerical success commensurate with his talent. His music straddles many genres, including funk, rock, Christian, and hip hop (he's part of the Trump Dawgs crew). Butch is a song-cycle about a superhero (that's why the first few seconds of The Wow Song sound funny).
