Kranky release new preview track from the upcoming Lotus Plaza album

14 Mar
Spooky Action at a Distance is the second album from Lotus Plaza set to reach eagerly awaiting audiences on 2nd April 2012 on Kranky. Lotus Plaza is the solo nom de plume of Lockett Pundt, better known as the guitarist in Deerhunter. Pundt has already reached great acclaim having penned a number of the best songs on the last two Deerhunter albums and his first album, The Floodlight Collective, was a tour de force of hypnotic guitar pop smarts. Spooky Action at a Distance brings the promise of yet more mesmerising tracks of layered and ultimately dreamlike bliss.
Pundt has the uncanny ability to build soaring, melodic gems from simple musical phrases; a möbius strip of a guitar line and repeating clipped drum roll in “Strangers”; a tribal drum beat holding down the foundation on “Out of Touch”; two acoustic guitar chords and a slight bit of snare as the basis for “Dusty Rhodes” through to the series of slowly descending piano chord scales on “Jet Out of the Tundra”.
There is a wide variety of songs and moods to be unearthed in Spooky Action at a Distance, from unabashed rockers such as “White Galactic One” and “Monoliths”, the lysergic electronics of “Rembember Our Days” with the album culminating in the acoustic laced introspection of the final two tracks, “Dusty Rhodes” and “Black Buzz”.
Spooky Action at a Distance is a wide angle view of what should be the zeitgeist of contemporary guitar pop. We are very excited to reveal that you can get a sneaky peak of the blissful chimings of ‘Strangers’ here now. For the rest of this sonic masterpiece, well, we may just have to keep you in suspense a little bit longer…
