Lotus Plaza
“Come Back”

You remember Lockett from Deerhunter, right? He has a solo project called Lotus Plaza, and “Come Back” is a nine-minute dream pop song off his new collab/split 10-inch with Nice Weekend (his fiancé), set for release on Valentine’s Day via Audraglint Recordings. This glistening track has all the depth of a solo home-studio recording, layer upon layer of reverberating instruments — hours of overdubs — but without the isolation of a lonely musician up all night recording. This feels like a more euphoric exercise. Discs come in old-school tip-on record sleeves. Should serve as a primer for a new Lotus Plaza full-length on Kranky due later this year.
