Eternal Lips, as a moniker, may be a worryingly scant number of Scrabble letter exchanges away from Wayne Coyne’s increasingly narcissistic neo-psych folly, although an otic kiss from Grey Gersten is infinitely more desirous these days. And Dream Hesitation, featuring the outstandingly ethereal vocal resplendence of a certain Sharon Van Etten, proves a smooch worth savouring: beginning with lo-fi drum machine thumps, the duo’s finely synchronised vocal duality soon pays dividends as slippery guitars and cosmic samples then oh, so seductively intervene. “It won’t be long, before I meet you” croons Gersten in his best David Longstreth impression, and with a freshly-planted lipstick mark still besmirching your stupefied features, you’ll likely go extolling the virtues of this particular number to everyone held dear to you as we do Tramp to this very day.
