Music Review: “Nightlight” by Dungeonesse

From Dungeonesse’s Dungeonesse


Liner notes: Joined by White Life’s Jon Ehrens, Jenn Wasner reinvents herself as a dance floor diva, with creamy keyboards, yearning voices, and pumping beats evoking a neon mirage of ecstatic rapture.

Behind the music: Besides singing alt-folk in the duo Wye Oak, the versatile Wasner also performs solo as the poppier Flock of Dimes, while her venture with fellow Baltimorean Ehrens harks back to ’90s R&B.
