Dzang – “Lotion” – [Dzang]
Dzang, LA producer Adam Gunther, brings bands and artists together in the studio telling them to play what they want in an open communication, band records unpredictable results and then he samples and edits the results to discrete tracks. Lotion is a good example of where the unpredictability resulted in darkish chillwave with pop-synth influences and an indie attitude where the guitar was invited amongst the synths and drum loops. The track “Need Tongue” even flirts with seventies American folk rock. The lyrics have a frankness with everything including sex with the female singer Molly Sarie providing a very distinct style on the vocal tracks. Take the songs in small doses — they has a clarity hiding behind a facade you need to break through.
