Dean Wareham Shares As Much As It Was Worth
I love the nakedness with which Dean Wareham is approaching his new record; he seems to be stripping back the magician’s curtains, and in doing so, he’s revealing this incredibly intimate world that’s been captivating me, single after single. This latest one has this emotional pull that I can’t help but to compare to some of Daniel Johnston’s best performances; it has the faintest imperfection, but softened by melody, completely transfixes the listener every step of the way. Every musical note just seems to delicately step around each syllable, careful not to stamp out any nuance that operates as an emotional black hole, sucking everything into the core of the song. I Have Nothing to Say to the Mayor of LA is out on October 15th via Double Feature Records.
