We couldn’t be more excited to announce today that Montreal’s Doldrums have agreed to release their label debut, The Air Conditioned Nightmare, on CD / LP / DL April 6th in Europe and April 7th in North America. The album was recorded in Montreal and LA and produced by Doldrums’ Airick Woodhead, and is a remarkable Sub Pop debut in every sense. But, don’t just take our word for it, listen to the lead single “HOTFOOT” (embedded) now to see what we’re going on so effusively about.
The Air Conditioned Nightmare is Doldrums follow-up to their 2013 debut Lesser Evil. Airick Woodhead, the DJ, producer and performer behind Doldrums makes a sizeable leap from being darling of the same fertile Montreal warehouse creative explosion that gave the world the likes of Grimes, Majical Cloudz and Blue Hawaii to simply being a stand-alone artist and composer on the cusp of something quite special.
Preorders for The Air Conditioned Nightmare are now available from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. All customers who pre-order the LP version of The Air Conditioned Nightmare from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited “Loser Edition” on clear vinyl and a limited edition 7” which features the songs “IDONTWANNABEDELETED” (feat. Samantha Urbani) and “Market Signals.” Additionally, there will be a new T-shirt design available both individually and as part of a bundle with purchases of the new record.
