Introducing…LA Priest

LA Priest is the name Sam Dust, late of Late of the Pier, adopted to release his beguiling space-pop-psyche solo work following the demise of the band he founded when still in his teens.

Arriving four years after the iconoclast variously known as Sam Dust, LA PRIEST and L.A. Priest thrilled the world with the cosmic pop of his debut album Inji, GENE is named after a brand new modular drum machine Sam dreamt up and built alone. Working in isolation for more than two years, soldering iron in hand, Sam designed GENE using 150 electrical circuits he made up himself.

Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA PRIEST and Late Of The Pier) have  just released  a debut record as Soft Hair. The duo explains that songs for the project “were written and recorded in a wide array of locations using methods that neither Mockasin nor Dust had used previously.” It’s a record that  transport the listener to a world somewhere between the familiar and unfamiliar, much like Mockasin and Dust’s other works.
