The Dream Syndicate – How Did I Find Myself Here


The Dream Syndicate is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California, originally active from 1981 to 1989, and reunited since 2012. The band is associated with neo-psychedelia and the Paisley Underground music movement; of the bands in that movement, according to the Los Angeles Times, the Dream Syndicate “rocked with the highest degree of unbridled passion and conviction.” Though never commercially successful, the band met with considerable acclaim, especially for its songwriting and guitar playing. Bandleader Steve Wynn reformed the band in 2012. Over the years, the Dream Syndicate has proven to be a massively influential force in the world of alternative rock, with artists like Kurt Cobain listing the band among their inspirations. As Wynn points out, the band itself was greatly influenced by underground pioneers like the Fall, the Gun Club, Neu!, and Big Star. How Did I Find Myself Here is their fifth studio album. Released i 2017, it is the band’s first since 1998. With heavy grooves, hypnotic guitar work, and gorgeously fractured textures, this psych-rock album feels both classic and forward-pushing.
