LA’s Tyler Parkford–a vocalist and multi-intrumentalist better known as part of Queens of the Stone Age offshoot Mini Mansions–may be crafting one of the more intriguing indie pop projects of the year with his upcoming Songs About Love And Lack ThereofThe album, as described by Mister Goodnite’s label Morning Ritual Recordings, consists of “a series of 12 lo-fi pop dreamscapes that sit somewhere between Frank Sinatra and Ariel Pink, Syd Barrett and Syl Johnson, whilst borrowing influences from the production styles of the RZA and MF Doom.” Perhaps lofty comparisons, but lead single “Don’t Trust Me” proves them at very least fitting touchstones, borrowing a well-worn loop from the aforementioned Johnson’s “I Hate I Walked Away,” and turning it into a lounge-y warning to a would be lover delivered in Parkford’s stylized falsetto.

Mister Goodnite’s Songs About Love And Lack Thereof will be released on a limited run of 50 cassettes via Morning Ritual in the UK on September 16th, a fittingly exclusive batch for a collection that, if “Don’t Trust Me” is any indicator, will be hushed and personal. Songs is also being released by Psychedelic Judaism in the US, so if you’re in the states and want to purchase it you can do so here.
