Lockett Pundt in axxxtion!

Light up to the latest gift from the spacey gods of surfgaze psychedelia! LOTUS PLAZA, the breakaway solo romp of DEERHUNTER guitarist Lockett Pundt, is a doozy of acid-washed synth automation and guitars shimmers painted in reverb. Super-stoned ponderings on relationships and cuddle-worthy melodies hang gently on undeniable pop hooks like delectable sacrificial offerings, while the jingle-jangle of guitars and tambourines bequeath the arrival of our ever-approaching summer. The music is simple and does not impose itself or aim too high — instead Pundt strives to pull the subtleties of each arrangement to the forefront of the recording, emphasizing the musicianship rather than the composition. LOTUS PLAZA’s sophomore release, Spooky Action At A Distance, released on April 2 on Kranky Records, spirals away into repeating choruses and verses and reverses, with Pundt drawing his inspiration from rigid forms and structures to whisk the listener away into his groove-laden dreamland. If you need something to mellow out to tonight, do yourself a favor and give LOTUS PLAZA a spin before the psych tides roll back out and you are lost in the seas of delay pedals forever!
