Dustin Lovelis takes us to trippy Tompkinsville

"Tompkinsville" sounds like a state of mind for singer-songwriter Dustin Lovelis. Though we're never quite sure where it is, Lovelis's striding psych-pop has a pleasantly hypnotic energy that makes you feel like you also belong there. A more sedate response to the disorderly garage rock that spikes our shores, the song's swirling melody creates a concentrated atmosphere that lingers in your mind the more you listen to its sumptuously extended passages. 

Lovelis just began a residency at Bootleg Theater for the month of July. "Tompkinsville" is the first reveal off of his debut solo effort, Been Hit Before, which comes out on August 25 via Friendship Fever. - Juan Rodríguez
