Dean Wareham – “Holding Pattern”

By Tom Breihan / January 14, 2014

The former Galaxie 500/Luna frontman Dean Wareham has been in the game for about a quarter century, but he hasn’t released a proper solo full-length album until now. Wareham recorded his self-titled LP, which follows the 2013 mini-album Emancipated Hearts, in My Morning Jacket’s Louisville studio, with MMJ frontman Jim James producing. The first single is “Holding Pattern,” a glinting midtempo rocker with lyrics that namecheck a host of classic rock bands and one of those classic beautifully fluid Wareham guitar solos. Listen to it below.
