Gavin Russom/Crystal Ark Top 10 Chart

Gavin Russom in two places at once.

Gavin Russom has been one of my favorite artists on DFA since the Black Leotard Front’s “Casual Friday” from 2004. I still buy DFA singles on vinyl, and I’m pretty good about taking care of records, but not Gavin Russom’s stuff–Black Leotard Front and Black Meteoric Star were played ragged. Now he’s back as Crystal Ark. I’m listening and playing out digitally mostly these days, so I don’t have to worry about destroying another fine medium of recorded sound. . .whew! Save the vinyl.

Check out the chart below along with the instrumental of his new single “The City Never Sleeps.”
