LA Priest Debut Album Out June 29th
May 1, 2015
The debut album from Sam Dust aka LA PRIEST, Inji comes June 29th (June 30th North America) through Domino. The 8min version of lead single “Learning To Love” can be heard here:- http://www.smarturl.it/LearningToLoveSC
Inji reasserts Dust as a truly idiosyncratic voice in British music, applying the same frantically eclectic, mischievous and wilfully absurd spirit of his previous band, the beloved Late of the Pier, to ever more nuanced and affecting songwriting and composition.
Inji confounds and delights in equal measure, recalling the disruptive, deliberately misleading pop of artists such as David Sylvian, Arthur Russell and David Byrne.
If it doesn’t conform it’s because it’s not supposed to.
