MAGNET Television: Q&A With Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate, Baseball Project)

John Coltrane stereo blues? Try Miles Davis, Sly Stone and Neu! instead. The Dream Syndicate is back with its third LP, The Universe Inside (Anti-), since re-forming in 2012, and it’s a glorious, groovy, improvisational mess of an album. Led as always by Steve Wynn—who also plays in the Baseball Project with drummer/wife Linda Pitmon and R.E.M./Minus 5 members Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Scott McCaughey—the Dream Syndicate has once again delivered a collection of songs we need in these times. Wynn has also just released Solo! Acoustic Vol 1, a collection of re-recorded songs from his back catalog available only on Bandcamp.
