Lt. Dan here with my DJ pick of the week from Fruit Bats. It’s been three years since Eric D. Johnson’s brilliant LP, Absolute Loser, and after much anticipation, he’s returned with a new record, Gold Past Life, out June 21 via Merge Records.
The title track is everything we could have hoped for from the ‘60s pop inspired project. Johnson says of the song, “love and fate and the meaningless random brutal nature of the universe. Y’know, small stuff and big stuff!”
Listen below and let us know what you think.
