DG is a project by Houses singer Dexter Tortoriello. According to the press release, he’s been working on his debut full-length, Still Life (released earlier this year), for three years.

Video – Dawn Golden, “All I Want”:

The album is “built around a stream-of-conscious craft exploring the doleful voids of addiction, love and death – themes all extremely relevant to Tororiello’s beginnings,” reads the release. “‘It’s an excavation of my past,’ the now-clean Tortoriello says. ‘I’m far enough away from the reality of these stories now to write with perspective. It’s like putting them behind museum glass. They’re no longer mine anymore.’ The album gains its stark emotional perspective though unique production in heavy exploration of sonic textures using frozen cut-ups and creative vocal editing to flip a traditionally-futuristic sound into something that oozes emotion.”
