After decades of musical experimentation in L.A. based shoegazer outfit Further, late-‘80s Brit-sounding twangers The Tyde and seminal neo-psych folk legends Beachwood Sparks, Frausdots founder Brent Rademaker has finally taken the reins and created dream rock that’s as deliciously rich and indulgent as he wants it to be. He and Michelle Loiselle’s sexy, melodic nightlife pop marks a return to Rademaker’s songwriting roots: “I was always the psychic bassist who wrote the music,” he explains. “If I hadn’t been playing second fiddle in any band I’d ever been in, I would have made this record right out of high school.” Featuring contributions from Mia Doi Todd and members of The Cure, Warlocks, The Tyde, Rooney, and Brian Jonestown Massacre, Couture, Couture, Couture has the same rich, brittle bitterness as dark chocolate (or classic Echo and the Bunnymen albums).
