Stream: Dustin Lovelis, ‘Idiot’



Dustin Lovelis finally has a release date for his album “Dimensions,” which first came on the radar last summer when he unveiled the song “Off the Rails.” The former frontman of the Fling will issue the album May 19 via Porch Party Records. The album — recorded with producer/bassist Elijah Thomson at Elliott Smith’s old digs, New Monkey Studios, and featuring Frank Lenz on drums — reveals Lovelis’ warm embrace of ’60s and ’70s psych-pop, and on his woozy new single “Idiot,” Lovelis self-deprecates: “I’m a lonely kid / I’m too old to have thoughts like this / I’m an idiot / But I’m fine in my safety net.” It’s a good thing Lovelis is letting us have a look inside.
