Dungeonesse – “Nightlight” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

A little while back, Jenn Wasner, the heavenly voice behind Wye Oak, linked up with producer Jon Ehrens to form Dungeonesse, and their self-titled album of sparkling early-'90s dance-pop and R&B pastiches was a recent Album Of The Week pick. The new video for "Nightlight," from director Ariana Natale, is a soft-focus look at Wasner… More »

Album Of The Week: Dungeonesse Dungeonesse

You haven't always been able to hear it in the actual music that comes out of the city, but Baltimore's DIY-heavy indie rock scene has always been a beautifully unsnobby and pop-happy sort of place. I haven't lived there in nearly eight years, and haven't spent nearly enough time there since I moved out, but… More »

Stream Dungeonesse’s Dungeonesse

Dungeonesse's self-titled debut full-length is out next week, but the '90s R&B-inflected, alt-pop gem can be heard in its entirety now. We've had three samplings from the record already, including the light-as-air lovey-dovey "Shucks," which I still listen to weekly. Other standouts on the record include the roller rink-primed "Private Party" and melancholy cut "Wake… More »

And so, for you, here is the month's music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited only… More »

Dungeonesse – “Nightlight”

Dungeonesse are slated to release their self-titled debut next month and have given us another glimpse of the pop&B to come with "Nightlight." Just as shimmering as their last single "Shucks," the track goes further into their '80s pop-gleaned sound, primed for soft swaying over heartache. Check it out below. More »

Dungeonesse – “Shucks”

I could tell you that Dungeonesse's "Shucks," the second single from their upcoming self-titled debut, is like the perfect hybrid of How To Dress Well's R&Basinski and the new alt-pop. I could also talk about how the synths are weird and warm and singer Jenn Wasser's breathy coos belong on some So So Def release… More »

2012 In Review: The New Wave Of R&B Comes Into Full Bloom

Throughout the course of my life I have not been what you would call an R&B listener. A brief history of my dabbling: I owned a cassette copy of Boyz II Men's II because who didn't? A year later I nabbed Mariah Carey's Daydream on CD, mesmerized by the tree swing party that was the… More »

Dungeonesse – “Drive You Crazy” Video

Jenn Wasner is the inimitable front-belter for Baltimore duo Wye Oak, and lately she's also been releasing some pretty great solo music under her Flock Of Dimes pseudonym. Now she's got a third project going: Dungeonesse, a duo with White Life's John Ehrens. (Baltimoreans who name their band after misspellings of crab species deserve high-fives.)… More »
