Listen to Your Temporary Custodian
After thrilling with his first “mind-bending” single “Until It Goes,” pioneering, Grammy award-winning producer (Swans, St. Vincent, David Byrne, Explosions In the Sky,etc.) John Congleton is back with his second single as John Congleton and the Nighty Nite. “Your Temporary Custodian” is his most personal track on his forthcoming debut full-length album Until the Horror Goes, out April 1st on Fat Possum Records.
Described as a howling sardonic document of existential angst, the album rows firmly against the placating currents of popular music. Crafting a genre of his own, Congleton creates a kind of horror-gospel mixing unflinching examinations of modern life with humor, high art with low culture. Pop melodies given voice by massive and unexpected orchestration live within wild sounds and atonality.
