The cynicism of Ian Wayne’s new album is evident from its title. A Place Where Nothing Matters is out today and deals with hopelessness and disinterest via unique songwriting that feels more like poetry than lyrics. This LP follows his lofi At Home EP from last summer, which itself was a reinvention of his career; he had previously put out a couple releases that were based on cold electronics. In Wayne’s newfound warmth, one may also find honesty, even if you have to look past his facetious tone.
