Black Light
by The Dream Syndicate
(38 plays) | (1 fan)

This is the second LP since The Dream Syndicate reunited in 2012. Frontman Steve Wynn had this to say about his inspiration making this album: "When I was writing the songs for the new album I was pretty obsessed with Donuts by J Dilla. I loved the way that he approached record making as a DJ, a crate-digger, a music fan wanting to lay out all of his favorite music, twist and turn the results until he made them into his own. I was messing around with step sequencers, drum machines, loops — anything to take me out of my usual way of writing and try to feel as though I was working on a compilation rather than ‘more of the same.’ You might not automatically put the Dream Syndicate and J Dilla in the same sentence, but I hear that album when I hear our new one." https://bit.ly/2CIkRlG

The Ghost Who Walks
by Karen Elson
(27 plays) | (0 fans)

Karen Elson's first full-length album was written, for the most part, in secret without letting her (then) husband Jack White hear what she was doing. "At home I would hide—I would play my songs really in isolation. I would lock the bathroom door and hide. Eventually he was like, 'Why are you hiding this from me?'" https://bit.ly/2W9sVqo

Modafinil Blues
by Matthew Dear
(51 plays) | (1 fan)

"Imagine an octopus: agile, stealthy, colors in flux. Now imagine the ink spreading out, the black fog of the disappearing act. Over the past 19 years, Matthew Dear has been a little like that cephalopod, flitting between aliases and sounds—bristly minimal house, thundering peak-time techno, shape-shifting electronic pop."
