You can’t get away from the sun. Brad Laner returns with his third solo album, created in the winds swirling around the reuniting of his cult noise-pop band and American shoegaze pioneers, Medicine. Like Neighbor Singing and Natural Selections before it, Nearest Suns was composed, played, and recorded entirely in Laner’s Granada Hills, California home by Laner himself. It’s an old new universe in twelve songs, shattering what it means to be called a singer-songwriter, shattering the sugar glass walls of psychedelia, messing around with the notion of getting older, and soundtracking the infinite distortion and infinite harmony of falling in and out of love.
Brad Laner founded Medicine, whose first album in a decade was released this year on Captured Tracks. Laner’s resumé also includes Electric Company, Steaming Coils, Savage Republic, Amnesia, Lusk, and The Internal Tulips.
Released alongside Hometapes.
