“Duke on the Beach”

Like, who can actually categorize the word “indie” without making shit sound like a marketing ploy? I dunno. But it seems like what listeners have already considered “indie” music has all been jet-packed into Night People in a way iconic way. Way. And with Blanche Blanche Blanche, Night People progresses its sound through this year’s Wink With Both Eyes on LP, after they’s debut cassette last year Songs of. Traversing sound from ocean-side hotel lobbies, Midwest airport buses, and mirrored dimensional planes, Blanche Blanche Blanche broadens their “indie” mobility via glittering obscurity. “Duke on the Beach” is the suspense part of this adventure. Sliding through rain and muck, but safely executing every turn, the driver races to the terminal as Duke fingers out more money and waves of water are smashing against the median over the car. Duke imagines himself on a sun-chair looking at the same watch he’s checking now, calculating the minutes up until relaxation.
