“From the beginning,” The Dream Syndicate‘s Steve Wynn tells Aquarium Drunkard in a recent interview, “we wanted to be psychedelic, but not in the bell bottoms and tie-dye sort of way, but something that would give you a head trip and take you somewhere else from where you started.” The band has certainly accomplished that over a career that spans 35 years, and their evolved aesthetic is about to be on display with the release of their first album since the 1980s – How Did I Find Myself Here? – later this week. The AQ interview is essential reading for fans of Wynn and the Dream Syndicate, as well as new listeners who’ve heard pre-album singles “Glide” and “How Did I Find Myself Here?” and are curious to learn about the seminal group’s history. Read it here.
We’ve previously serviced the singles and will be sending the album along shortly. Get ready for The Dream Syndicate!
