Dot Plaza’s Industria is a Wild, Weird Looking-Glass Into Psychedelic Pop’s Future
A lush pop masterwork as indebted to SMiLE-era Beach Boys as it is clued into modern sounds like Dr. Dog and Animal Collective, Industria displays a great songwriter and arranger at full tilt. These are dazed, lovestruck songs, thick with gauzy reverb as much as they are anchored in pop craft.
Listen To ‘Industria’:
Says Tomkinson, “The album is anchored by the drums and percussion, but I think Industria is in a constant state of flux. I know Mom said, ‘Be home before dark,’ but I’d keep your flashlight on and explore this one to the end.”
Recommended for any fan of dazzling, weird and winsome tunes, Industria is a journey worth taking.
