“New primitive” meets space: instrumental guitar-based folk and a little bit of cosmic, experimental psych. Influential, local, and soft-spoken, DPG (Tarentel, The Drift, Moholy Nagy) is one of the sweetest, most genuine artists making music today. Dreamy, hypnotic, melodic, warm, stark, yet dense guitar-based compositions with some synths, tape loops, effects thrown in. Grody’s been focusing on the solo stuff for a while now, and this record, along with his recent performance opening for Grouper at The Hemlock confirms that he seems to have really found what he’s been digging for-- he’s taken it to a new level of blissful, gorgeous dreaminess. DPG is a huge friend of KZSU, as is Three Lobed, so give this some love. No FCCs.
