BG111 | So Much Fun

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , on January 24, 2017 by bleedinggold


Dream Joints’ long awaited debut 7” perfectly encapsulates the hauntingly catchy nature of tripped out garage rock aficionado Mike Turi’s (Wild Wild Wets, The Old In Out) solo project. The A side, ‘So Much Fun’ finds him awash in dirty, droney synths. Languid vocals are smeared, dream-like, across the tracks noise pop face. It’s a sound that somehow feels as uplifting as it is foreboding. B side, ‘Dust’, a dirgey, psychedelic tinged dive into a rock and roll wasteland, follows suit. Pairing a hypnotic progression with tinkling, pulsating keys, ‘Dust’ is as much the soundtrack for long drives through the dark empty of desert, as it is for sweaty, gritted teeth nights in packed underground clubs.

With the gloomy psychedelia of The Growlers, the spaced out vocals of Jesus & Mary Chain and the expansive instrumentation of Brian Jonestown MassacreDream Joints weave together a patchwork of influences to create a unique sound that stretches from vampiric to blissful. All the while sounding immediate and absolutely vital.

Dream Joints’ debut 7” So Much Fun / Dust will be released in February, 2017 through Bleeding Gold Records in preparation for the release of full length ‘Just Like Medicine’ in April.

*a lathe-cut is a unique, hand-made MONO product that is supposed to be a collector’s item, and not necessarily made for playing. Although these lathe-cuts are ready to play and will not harm your needle, they may sound fuzzy, dull, pop and hiss, or possibly even skip**.

**if your copy skips, try the ol’ penny-on-the-tonearm trick!!
