Listen to Dungeonesse's Love-Drunk Rework of John Grant's "Black Belt"
Baltimore duo Dungeonesse (Jon Ehrens of the Art Department and Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak) take former Czars frontman John Grant's "Black Belt" from a turn on the dancefloor to a tryst in the nightclub bathroom with their love-drunk woozy rework of the subterranean four-on-the-floor banger. The single is our first taste of Grant's upcoming LP Pale Green Ghosts—an effortless submersion into disco-house that might come as a shock to the system for fans of his folksy 2010 solo debut, Queen of Denmark. Whether you're a fan of John Grant past, present, or future, stream Dungeonesse's remix of "Black Belt" below and snatch Pale Green Ghosts when it drops May 14th on Partisan Records.
And if you're in New York or Europe, catch John at one of these live dates:
