HUMAN PIPPI ARMSTRONG Nathan Hemphill’s one-man project, Human Pippi Armstrong, can be hard to pin down. But there seems to be one thing everyone who talks about it agrees on — it’s pretty damn great. Hemphill has coined his music “buzzpop,” but it’s better described as imminently catchy, experimental pop. His songs skip from style to style, a Western-tinged “Orango” immediately followed by the pseudo-chillwave “The Best Coasts have Surfer Blood Washed Out by Waves” on his Easy Times EP. Over the years, Hemphill has found fans in folks like Future Islands and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, for whom he’s opened. He’s been at this thing for 11 years now, holding down a day job while remaining a prolific artist, with 12 albums to his name. That dedication reflects a love of the game that’s easily heard in the music. Hemphill is a local gem.
