Congratulations to The Dream Syndicate for a massive Top 40 debut at NACC last week with How Did I Find Myself Here?, the band’s first LP in nearly 30 years. It’s a truly remarkable release from the band, which initially broke up in the late Eighties before reforming in 2012. That it took so long to make a new record is evidence that the group wanted to get it just right – and they did! Add it to your playlist now.
Stereogum says the new record is “confident and playful, amped up and in sync. Each of the album’s eight songs is unique unto itself, yet all flow together into a cohesive set. The album sounds a bit like the ‘90s bands that Dream Syndicate influenced, a joyful immersion into collective melodic noise… [band leader] Steve Wynn is committed to always moving forward, even when he chooses to look back. We are all the beneficiaries.” Read the full review here.
