Dion Lunadon is the bass player in New York noisegaze stalwarts A Place To Bury Strangers, but here is his first album as a solo artist. He’s used the opportunity to make music that shares some of the heaviness of that band with a brighter kind of wild-pop melodicism. Self-titled album released in an edition of 500 LPs on Agitated.

So this is the guy from A Place to Bury Strangers making a kind of unhinged lo-fi rock and roll racket. Everything is fuzzed up to the max and on opener 'Insurance, Death and Taxes' it's like a hurricane of highly compressed fuzz. 'Reduction Agent' is some slimy low bellied rock and roll with a riff like 'On the Road Again' and wild, barely controlled vocals. Distorted organ screeches through 'Fire' as Dion howls out like Jon Spencer on an angry day.
It's an album that will appeal to fans of distorted up garage rockers like Ty Segall. Lunadon has an energetic style which on 'Com/Broke' is like the Stooges fed through a wind tunnel with a fast moving, catch all chorus bursting out of it's seams.
Though there are moments where your ears can take a rest as on the kraut/pulse instrumental 'Hanging By A Thread' generally this is an album of almost relentless fuzzed up garage rock screeching and howling it's way into your increasingly battered skull.
Blows away the cobwebs.
