    Jack Name is the solo moniker of Los Angeles musician and producer John Webster Johns, who over the course of his multi-year career has worked with the likes of White Fence, Cass McCombs, and Ariel Pink, among others. This past winter, he released his debut solo album as Jack Name, Light Show, which saw him combine the lo-fi aesthetic and DIY attitude of his past collaborators into a bizarre and blissful take on psychedelic fuzz-pop. For album No. 2, Johns has signed with Castle Face Records, where he’ll release Weird Moons on January 20th.

    As our first taste, he’s shared “Running After Ganymede”. Halloween may be long over, but Johns apparently isn’t done with the ominous music. Drawing from the realms of goth rock and New Wave, he layers together synths and drums and bass that are practically ripped from a John Carpenter film, albeit with an extra sheen of post-punk chilliness to it. Listen in below.
