Set Your Mind Free on the Psychedelic Shoegaze Soundwaves of DAIISTAR “TRACEMAKER”

There’s no way I can listen to DAIISTAR and not let myself get lifted out of my physical reality by their psychedelic shoegaze like I’m riding Falkor into a crystal clear sky (I’m an 80s baby)! They just put out a new single, “TRACEMAKER,” that’s produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels and engineered by James Petralli of White Denim. It’s a song that makes me rethink all my cynical beliefs about humanity and remember that sometimes we can be beautiful, if we let ourselves be. Sometimes it takes a hero dose of psychedelics to see it, sometimes it just takes DAIISTAR. They’re releasing physical copies of the single on lathe cuts, with a cover of Primal Scream’s “Burning Wheel” on the B-side, and you’ll need to grab the lathe cut to hear that (I really wanna hear it!). DAIISTAR is playing a few California dates this week so make sure to check those out below! Right now, hit play on “Tracemaker” and let your mind free from its 3D cage…
