Lightning Dust Announces New Album – ‘Fantasy,’ Stream First Single

Lightning Dust are back with their third proper full-length – Fantasy. Set for US release on June 25, the new album marks a sonic turn for the Vancouver duo and ensures you’ll have just the perfect soundtrack for your forthcoming road trip. See exactly what we mean with the first single, “Diamond,” available for streaming above or at Urban Outfitters.

Fantasy came to be after many hours spent in Amber and Josh’s shared recording studio, The Balloon Factory. In that time, the duo took on a new, more-informed sound that still delivers the rich atmosphere we’ve grown to know Lightning Dust for. But who are we to say? Decide for yourself after pre-ordering Fantasy at SC Distribution, iTunes or Amazon. The deluxe bundle, available only at SCD, includes the album on both CD and vinyl, a glossy poster, a limited-edition 7″ and an early download of the album available starting June 11. COOL!

Sometimes, in the office, this happens…

It’s a proud moment of fandom, but also very much akin to wearing the same dress to prom. First man in the office owns the rights for the day. Today, this man was me.

Getting ready for LOST with Justin Vernon, Josh Wells and the Jagjaguwar crew

There might be some pre-conceived notions about what constitutes water cooler conversation at an indie label, but I have to tell you that it’s basically the same old shit.  There’s enough fantasy baseball and fantasy football to keep my eyes rolling for most of the year, but I am happy to report that the majority of my co-workers love all the same television programming that I do.
