Doldrums - Empire Sound

The work of Doldrums - aka. 21 year old Montrealer Airick Woodhead - floats in a sea of chopped up samples, disembodied vocals and tribal percussion. We’re happy to announce Empire Sound - a manic EP of electro-hallucinogenic freak outs and fuzzy warm nostalgia - will be available through No Pain In Pop shortly. For now, listen to ‘I’m Homesick Sittin’ Up Here in My Satellite’ below.
