Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! We’re taking it to the icy streets of Detroit for this week’s episode, tuning into the creative mind of Derek Stanton. You may remember him from the Brooklyn trio Awesome Color–which opened for the likes of Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth. But he’s got, dare I say, an even better project brewing. It’s called Turn to Crime, and the album we’re spinning today is Can’t Love.

Stanton acknowledges that this is the closest he believes he can get to creating the kind of music he hears in his head and wants to play. There are no rules, lots of negative space, plenty of minimalist ambience, and simultaneously, pop-hooks and sing-along moments. Oh, and there’s the loping psychedelia of ten-plus minute Kraut-rock inspired jams.

Don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Turn to Crime!
