Dawes is an American folk-rock band from Los Angeles, California, composed of brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith, along with Wylie Gelber and Lee Pardini. Misadventures of Doomscroller is their 8th studio album, with long-time producer Jonathan Wilson back at the helm.
From the first note, Misadventures of Doomscroller, the eighth studio album by the Los Angeles based rock band Dawes, sets a tone all its own. Recorded by Jonathan Wilson (Roger Waters, Father John Misty, Jackson Browne, Jenny Lewis) at his Five Star Studios nestled in Topanga Canyon, Misadventures of Doomscroller is an expansion from their previous records, the 6-track wonderfully epic and at times psychedelic album, highlights Dawes’ popular live shows, showcasing their natural musicality.
Taylor Goldsmith explains, “We’ve always tried to be minimalists. Now we wanna be maximalists. See how far a song can take us. Find the song within a song. Strive for a kind of excellence we always quietly believed we had inside us but didn’t have the balls to put it down on tape.”
