Doldrums, fronted by Montreal’s Airick Woodhead, announced upcoming release of The Air Conditioned Nightmare, mixed by Damian Taylor at Golden Ratio in Montreal. It comes out April 7 in the U.S. and April 6 in Europe via their new label home, Sub Pop.
The album is titled after Henry Miller’s 1945 collection of essays. Woodhead discussed the album’s central themes:
Conflict is at the heart of this album. There’s a lot of paranoid sentiment and Dystopian imagery in there. The threat of a mundane reality ties it together, as does an obsession with plasticity. Songs come from specific feelings or images. Anxiety is my default state.
