SONG PICK: The Dream Syndicate – Black Light



SONG PICK: The Dream Syndicate – Black Light

The Dream Syndicate are gearing up to release their second full length album since their re-union in 2012. The album is called “These Times” about which lead singer and songwriter Steve Wynn says:

“These Times. That’s it. It is all we’re talking about, all we’re thinking about. There is no avoiding the existential panic of a world that’s hurtling somewhere quickly, evolving, and shifting course by the hour.  It seems like a lie to not address or reflect the things that we can’t stop thinking about—the whole world’s watching indeed. The lyrics are just a mirror of the dread, panic, mania, speculation, melancholy and ultimately shrugging abandonment that just might follow. It’s just all about where we are.”

Fortunately for all of us, there is not just all that talk but there is music too and if it is as compelling and hypnotic as “Black Light”, we have our 4 minutes and 41 seconds of wholesome escape. The track is beautifully brooding, with thick layers of reverb and a spellbinding, irresistible vibe. Listen to “Black Light”, our Song Pick of the Day:
