Jean Dawson is the kind of artist who plays by his own rules, and on his latest “THREE HEADS*” he throws out his own rule book to make a new kind of monster. The new single switches from an agitated snaking guitar line to a transcendentally ethereal vocal before returning to full intensity. There’s as much new wave as there is dreampop as there is punk in the new single. It’s a surreal but compelling mix that highlights both his songcraft and production skills. Dawson’s best tracks follow a dream logic with visuals beamed in from another reality, and on “THREE HEADS*” the mercurial auteur has turned in a highlight among highlights.
