Lotus Plaza

The Floodlight Collective is the debut solo release from Lockett Pundt, who also writes and plays guitar in the band Deerhunter. This album sounds exactly like what you’d expect a Deerhunter side-project to sound like, except with multi-layered, lo-fi production and barely intelligible lyrics that surround reverb-heavy guitars and keys.

Pundt plays all of the instruments on The Floodlight Collective, which the label calls "an expansive meditation on the modern history of the pop song with an obvious appreciation for the atmospheric vocal harmonies of the 50's, the Brill Building writers of the 60's, and the sounds of the early 80's postpunk UK scene." You can pick it up at eMusic and Insound.
