Few people have as much to do with the sound of present-day indie rock as John Congleton. As a producer, Congleton excels at finding a sound that’s complicated and idiosyncratic but still lush and heavily orchestrated. He’s produced every St. Vincent album since 2009’s Actor, as well as records from Explosions In The Sky, the Walkmen, the Mountain Goats, Swans, Baroness, and Angel Olsen, among many others. (He’s also the former frontman of the band the Paper Chase.) And as Pitchfork reports, he’s about to go solo. Later this year, under the name John Congleton And The Nighty Nite, Congleton will release his solo debut Until The Horror Goes. Its leadoff single is “Until It Goes,” a song that’s nearly as catchy as it is anxious and jittery. Listen below.
Until The Horror Goes is out 4/1 on Fat Possum.
