How long have you known?

Z. Cole Smith has been working on his DIIV project for a few years now.  Apparently, Smith holed himself up in a stuffy room in Bushwick for a summer and absorbed the work of Lucinda Williams, Jandek, Nirvana, and James Welsh, amongst others.  This results in a sound that takes many of the lovely guitar-pop elements from Beach Fossils, his other band, and places them in a more complex landscape of tight new-wave melodies, and propulsive kraut rock.  In short, its fantastic.  The new album Oshin can be streamed here and a few of the tracks can be heard below. Oshin is out June 26th via Captured Tracks.
