Item Description
Opaque Forest VinylA country songwriter from Brooklyn's indie underground, DougiePoole blurs the lines between genre and generation on his thirdsolo album, The Rainbow Wheel of Death. Rooted in sharp songwritingvand the organic sounds of a live-in-the-studio band, it's aclassic-sounding record for the modern world.The Rainbow Wheel of Death's title nods to the colorful pinwheelthat appears onscreen whenever a computer's application stalls.For Poole _ who found himself working as a freelance computerprogrammer once the pandemic brought his touring schedule toa temporary halt in 2020 _ it's also a reference to the holdingpattern that's left much of society feeling stuck, unable to moveahead in an uncertain world. That feeling was pervasive when hebegan writing these nine songs, finishing the first handful of tracksin his New York City bedroom and wrapping up the songwritingprocess in the recording studio itself.Once hailed as the "patron saint of millennial malaise" for hissardonic wit and topical, tongue-in-cheek songwriting, Poolebroadens his reach here. "High School Gym" builds a bridgebetween 2020s lo-fi textures and 1980s pop vibes, while "Must BeIn Here Somewhere" _ whose narrator sits at a lap top, searching through "every server burning in North Carolina" for a digitalsouvenir of a long-lost relationship _ mixes modern concerns withclassic country instrumentation. If records like 2017's WideassHighway and 2020's breakthrough release The Freelancer's Bluestold stories about uninspired Millennials languishing in dead-endjobs and no-good relationships, then The Rainbow Wheel ofDeath focuses on more universal issues like mortality, love, andthe passing of the time.With The Rainbow Wheel of Death, Dougie Poole breathes newlife into country music, retaining the acclaimed elements of hisprevious work _ drum machines, synthesizers, and his deepset voice _ while pushing toward something warm, organic, andprismatic.
