Hear New Sound: DOM's "H o t . l i m i t"

Almost two years ago from today, AwkwardSound spotlighted only its third BUZZSound profile ever on Hadley / Worcester, MA-sprung sunny synth-pop weirdo DOM, who at the time seemed primed to see his star rise quickly after signing a major label deal with Capital Records / Astralwerks and receiving a ton of indie press hype spearheaded by the sizzling summer jam, "Living In America." 2011's Family of Love EP was a well-received effort that kept on going with DOM's melted pop fun, but even with all the industry lov and playing up the obligatory radio show and festival route, the solo project-turned-quartet (and now apparently a solo act again) had fallen back into a pattern of being an unknown after DOM holed himself in a studio in parts unknown. Appropriately enough, the shaggy-haired stoner has resurfaced under their usual guise of quietly DIY-ing things with the new track "H o t . l i m i t," set to appear on his first full-length (finally) HYPERFANTASY XL LP, release date TBA with label to be determined as well. As the album's opening track, it's mostly instrumental, pouring a Crayola box coating of post-chillwave psychedelia over a glowing soundboard, but ultimately leaving AS intrigued by its potential. Warm up to DOM's return below...
