Doldrums lets another one loose from his upcoming (excellently titled) album The Air Conditioned Nightmare, and it's heavy. Coming after the beguilingly hopeful first single "HOTFOOT," "My Friend Simjen" better exemplifies the LP's anxious, dystopian preoccupation, often feeling downright frightening. It's the stuff of nightmares (which, yeah, that's the point). Still, you should listen to it:
The Air Conditioned Nightmare is out April 7 via Sub Pop, his first on the indie superlabel.
