dreamsalon Thirteen Nights (LP, £17.95)label: Captcha
Seattle garage rock savants Dreamsalon release their debut album. The provenance of the Seattle-based band Dreamsalon is absolutely staggering. The group consists of members Min Yee, Craig Chambers and Matthew Ford. Individually they have played in the critically acclaimed bands Aframes, Factums, Love Tan, Yves/Son/Ace, The Intelligence and Evening Meetings. Based solely on their previously recorded outputs, their new joint effort “Thirteen Nights” should automatically be in your tote bag as you leave the record store. It is gonna be etched on your brain by the end of the first spin. However, this record isn’t just about the bands you know and love. This supergroup lays down a highly addictive spaced-out rock vibe that is beautifully constructed, crafting a distinct voice that distinguishes Dreamsalon from the individual members’ prior productions. The album was recorded at the Pool in Portland by Alex Yusimov, mixed by Matt Stegner at Adobe and mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic Mastering. The band will be embarking on a short west coast tour prior to the album’s official release. The Dreamsalon sound was influenced by: Yura Yura Teukoku, Gun Club, The Fall, Alan Vega and Pere Ubu. We would recommend this album if you like Thee Oh Sees, Love Tan, Spray Paint, The Intelligence, Evening Meetings, Unnatural Helpers or anything from the Captcha Records catalogue.
