JOSH REICHMANN / DOPES has built a small canon of work over the course of the last few years, releasing records with the post-punk romance band TANGIERS, and more recently as a solo artist. His reinvention and foray into strange frontiers has been documented in two LPs, and a handful of EPs and singles. From the stripped-down psychedelic song writing to his personal and revelatory-lyrical narratives, Josh’s experimentations in outsider pop are the underpinnings and backbone of his songwriting and production – A production and style that has garnered him national and international acclaim, among others in Dazed and Confused, Fader, XLR8R, and Pitchfork.

    After Live sees Josh Reichmann move into a synth and atmospheric direction that echoes bygone eras of sentiment and simplicity. This is shamanic dream pop with industrial roots, and a vision of raw dance music for the city life. Underground house, early techno, 90’s east-coast underground hip hop, California sunshine ballads, Leonard Cohen, and Wings are all summoned.

    Written and produced with Steve Singh in Toronto, Josh wrote and played all the instruments over a year’s time. Josh Reichmann is also in the synth/prog/heavy freak project BAD TITS with Sebastien Grainger (DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979).
