The Roots guitarist “Captain” Kirk Douglas announces new album, New Unknown, premieres hard-riffing single, Over The Ocean

by GuitarDomain

Earlier this month, “Captain” Kirk Douglas, electric guitar player for hip-hop legends the Roots, released a new single under the Hundred Watt Heart moniker, We Can Be One. A cinematic, 7/8 cocktail of funky rhythm work and syncopated wah stabs, it’s one of the best guitar tracks we’ve heard thus far in September.

Now, Douglas has followed up that single with Over The Ocean, a world-weary rocker that would sound much more at home on a Foo Fighters record than a Roots LP, and shows the SG-wielding six-stringer’s riff-writing talent.
