We’ve been following the amazing trajectory of Doldrums‘ career since the earliest days of the blog. From his first VHS tape release, to his first full-length Lesser Evil on Arbutus Records a couple years ago. He’s always managed to impress us with his take on wall-of-sound electro weirdness, adding a psychedelic element to everything he touches. But it’s on The Air Conditioned Nightmare, his first release on Sub Pop, that he really comes into his own, making a huge statement on the balance of that inherent weirdness and bonafied pop stardom. The album features some of the greatest songs of his career and sounds absolutely massive from beginning to end.
The Air Conditioned Nightmare is available now from Doldrums’s Bandcamp.
