Dinked #28 is from Mikal Cronin.
‘Seeker’ is the fourth and most accomplished solo record from Ty Segall’s collaborator and Freedom Band bass player Mikal Cronin. Hitting shelves on October 25th, it has quite a back story. Cronin had been dodging his writer’s block for some time (being an in demand musician for other projects makes that quite easy), but eventually realised he had to face the, ehm, music so he did what many imagine but few actually make real: he decamped to Idyllwild, a small mountain town in California, alone in a cabin with his cat Ernie. Here he wrote most of the material that would become, with the aid of his Freedom Band colleagues on performance duties, the devastating power pop of ‘Seeker’. Things got even more intense when an arsonist sparked fires in the woods where Cronin was staying; he upped and left for LA just in time.
In his own words: ‘I was looking for something: answers, direction, peace. I am the seeker.‘
He found it, and it’s a thing of beauty.
Issued on translucent green and black swirled vinyl, the numbered Dinked version also comes with an exclusive bonus 12″, ‘Arsonist’, containing extra tracks and pressed on translucent red and yellow vinyl. There are only 450 of these being made so get your orders in!
