My Red Dress — “Life of Crime”

If you only listen to one song today, make it “Life of Crime” by My Red Dress (2015, from a standalone single).

My Red Dress is a shoegaze/dream pop duo from San Francisco. Ryan Lescure and Sophia Campbell, who are also in the shoegazing band LSD And The Search For God, started the project a couple of years ago, and I’ve written about them once before here. Also, LSD here, and Ryan’s other band Moonbeams here.

I don’t know if there’s a new album or EP or whatever in the works, but they just unleashed this new track last week, and I finally stumbled upon it today. It’s exactly what you would expect from them, and it’s terrific.

This is that song

For the umpteenth time this week, there’s a connection to lovesliescrushing. When Lescure started the My Red Dress project, it was specifically so he could make something that sounded like lovesliescrushing. Although this new song isn’t as lovesliescrushing-y, that mission was definitely accomplished with “Dream” (2013).

I’m short on time, so I’ll let the song speak for itself without offering commentary.

You can download the song for free from soundcloud here
