Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard's series that showcases artists' very own throwback-themed playlists exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. The curated set features the artists' favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week's spin comes from The Dream Syndicate. The indie rock legends first came up in the 1980's Paisley Underground music scene in Los Angeles, alongside acts like The Bangles, Rain Parade and The Three O'Clock. After first parting ways in 1989, the group reunited in 2012 and dropped its first new album in 30 years with 2017's How Did I Find Myself Here?
The alt-rock outfit is currently in the midst of another album cycle, with their second set of new material -- These Times -- set for release Friday via label Anti-. Once again recorded at Richmond, Virginia's Montrose Studios, the set was co-produced by John Agnello (Phosphorescent, Waxahatchee, Dinosaur Jr.), with Wynn penning all the LP's lyrics in the studio once the band finished tracking, letting the sounds dictate each song concept.
