Australian surrealist crooner Jack Ladder and his band, the Dreamlanders (including one of Stereogum’s favorite weirdos, Kirin J. Callinan) will return with their fourth album, Playmates, this fall. Album opener “Come On Back This Way,” one of two tracks featuring guest vocals by Sharon Van Etten, sets Ladder’s haunting baritone against jaunty karaoke-lounge synth sounds. It’s an eerie song in its own right, but Alex Smith’s video lifts it to Lynchian heights. Let Ladder and a lady entrance you below, and be sure to stick around for a pedal steel solo by a guy with a hook for a hand. -- Stereogum
