In 2017 with How Did I Find Myself Here?, Steve Wynn and his Dream Syndicate returned from a long break after the release of their last album Ghost Stories back in 1988. Spearheading the Paisley Underground scene, the Los Angeles group founded in 1981 mixed influences of the Velvet Underground and Neil Young. As if going back in time, one finds the Californian group as it was thirty years ago, still intact. The guitars are violent but not over-indulgent and the rhythms are perfectly hypnotic. In the spirit of How Did I Find Myself Here?, These Times unleashes all Dream Syndicate’s trademarks. Thrashing rock (The Way In), to sixties Byrds guitars (Bullet Holes), vintage keys and all the archetypal instrumentation that works perfectly with Wynn’s productions can all be found in this rather unexpected album. “When I was writing the songs for the new album I was pretty obsessed with Donuts by J Dilla. I loved the way that he approached record making as a DJ, a crate-digger, a music fan wanting to lay out all of his favorite music, twist and turn the results until he made them into his own. I was messing around with step sequencers, drum machines, loops — anything to take me out of my usual way of writing and try to feel as though I was working on a compilation rather than ‘more of the same.’ You might not automatically put the Dream Syndicate and J Dilla in the same sentence, but I hear that album when I hear our new one.” ©Marc Zisman/Qobuz
