We named HDLSS a Band To Watch all the way back in 2010, when they went by the much more vowel-friendly moniker Headless Horsemen. Their name may have changed in the intervening years, but the quality of their warped take on pop music has not, and they’re returning later this summer with the politically-charged mini-album Selections From DUMB. Closing track “BILL$” is exactly the sort of thing that Ryan Hemsworth might champion in his Secret Songs series, an electronic bedroom-pop twinkle that sounds intimate and expansive at the same time. Hear it below.
DUMB is out 8/4 via HDLSS LTD. Pre-order it here. HDLSS will play Brooklyn Bazaar on 6/17 show supporting A-Wa.
