How Did I Find Myself Here?

The Dream Syndicate stopped by the studios of Seattle’s KEXP radio station in September while touring in support of the band’s excellent reunion album “How Did I Find Myself Here?”, recording a 35-minute session and interview that is now available for all to see.

The Steve Wynn-led band — which recently reunited on-stage with original bassist Kendra Smith performs four songs off “How Did I Find Myself Here?”, including the spiraling jam of a title track. Those guitar tones are incredible. Especially on How Did I Find Myself Here, it’s just exploding with a wild energy.

Dream Syndicate’s guitar-based indie rock sounds great today, though if you’ve been following Steve Wynn that won’t surprise you. Steve has drafted in his Miracle 3 front man instead and a real bonus is producer Chris Cacavas’s unobtrusive keyboards. Where they are more prominent his touches are deft and support the guitar-based sound which typifies this fine outfit. It’s fine American indie guitar-rock without any bombast or posturing, it’s smart and really well-honed.
