ULTRAVIOLET BATTLE HYMNS AND TRUE CONFESSIONS
The brand-new album from The Dream Syndicate blends vintage Krautrock, Eno-like ambience, Neu-inspired rhythmic groove and a Californian sun baked sheen into their classic psychedelic, melodic, hue.
The Dream Syndicate have moved well past their early Velvet Underground influences and taken on British glam, German prog, and more. “Clever, ambitious, and blessedly noisy.” AllMusic
Featuring singer/songwriter/guitarist Steve Wynn, drummer Dennis Duck, bassist Mark Walton, lead guitarist Jason Victor plus their newest member Chris Cacavas on keyboards, plus guest appearances from Stephen McCarthy (of The Long Ryders) and Marcus Tenney's expressive sax and trumpet work.
“Atmospheric rock music veering between noise and subtlety— compelling.” Pitchfork
