In 2009, idiosyncratic and iconic auteur Jim Jarmusch teamed up with Carter Logan and producer/engineer Shane Stoneback to record original music for his film The Limits of Control, releasing their songs as Bad Rabbit. Four years later, rechristened SQÜRL, the group is back with more slow-motion noise and psychedelia.
The track comes from their debut EP, the first of a series, to be released on May 21st in the U.S. Only a thousand vinyl copies will be pressed worldwide. And if you ask me, this is exactly the big, dense, complicated sound you want to hear on a genuine stereo. A halting English monologue is quickly overtaken by overdriven, oceanic guitar that hangs a surprisingly gently melody on the slowcore beat. Hey, can we get a movie to go with this?
Get a taste of their trippy “Pink Dust” below.
