Amid an apparently-endless series of “returns with a vengeance”, this one in particular will please fans of American Indy rock of the 1980s. Steve Wynn has resuscitated his Dream Syndicate, whose last album to date, Ghost Stories, came out in 1988! At the cutting edge of the Paisley Underground scene, the group, founded in Los Angeles in 1981, brought together the influences of the Velvet Underground and Neil Young. They recorded three other albums: the indispensable The Days Of Wine And Roses in 1982,Medicine Show in 1984 and Out Of The Grey in 1986. They were reformed in 2012 for a series of concerts. Signed by the very fashionable ANTI label, Wynn’s gang returned to the studio for good, to put down How Did I Find Myself Here?.. The rhythm section is of its times (Dennis Duck on drums and Mark Walton on bass); the lead guitar is wielded by Jason Victor, Steve Wynn’s vigorous companion on several of his recent solo efforts. As if time itself had stopped, we find the Californian band’s DNA fully intact. The guitars are violent but not exuberant, and the rhythms are hypnotic: without a doubt, Wynn and his accomplices know how to set off powerful tsunamis of electricity and noise (Out Of My Head) and more nuanced tempests (80 West), with the same efficiency… Finally, How Did I Find Myself Here? comes across like vintage Dream Syndicate, but with a 100% 2017 sound. A sonic upgrade which will enrapture early fans and allow new ones an easy taste of this uncompromising and venomous rock’n’roll.
