Los Angeles’s The Dream Syndicate have announced the release of These Times, their second album of new music since their 2012 reunion nearly thirty years after they first influenced California’s Paisley Underground scene.

We’re (sadly) old enough to have known and loved them the first time round and so we’re happy to share the first single from the record. It is the kaleidoscopic late night psychedelics of Black Light.

We’re long standing fans of Paisley Underground pioneers The Dream Syndicate. Last year they released their first album in thirty years, How Did I Find Myself Here?,to much (well deserved) critical acclaim and this week they have announced the release of their first-ever Record Store Day exclusive piece How We Found Ourselves…Everywhere!

It is a six-song  LP of outtakes, live recordings and B-sides. Today they are also revealing their new surreal video for one of those songs, the marvellous, hypnotic Recurring (Steve’s Dream).

Watch it here.


Ten new songs for you collected from the week’s new releases. Lots to discover including two stunning covers by The Tallest Man On Earth and Marie Danielle, snotty punk done to perfection by Amyl & The Sniffers, tracks from Americana heavyweights Deer Tick and Blitzen Trapper and classic country from Margo Price. Plenty more besides… enjoy.

Mrs Mackerel's TFI Friday (5th October). We’ve taken the sea, the sunshine and a lot of sand. We’ve been outside. A lot. I’ve done a little bit of running, a fair bit of reading; eldest sprat has done a marathon of fishing, while the other two have spent quite some time splashing in the waves. It’s been very chilled, harmonious and sultry. The Ventnor wall lizards are basking and we count them every day, on the way out and on the way in. We watch the magnificent clouds and the shimmering horizon, and we search for little pockets of peace and enjoy them all the more in their isolation.

I sleep a lot and I dream even more, long and winding surreal stories. My head is full and my heart feels tender. There is no music, just a secret dialogue between my thoughts and memories. Perhaps the soundtrack comes later.
