Dream The Electric Sleep – Beneath The Dark Wide Sky3rd August 2016
Dream The Electric Sheep unleashed their new eclectic progressive rock album 22nd July of this year & what a mix of styles this album is.
Combing the headiness of Hawkwind, the grunge element of Soundgarden & the technical of early Genesis, this record is not missing a trick for it’s accesabilty & appeal to metal heads.
The single Let The Light Flood In combine shoegazer with a touch of Pink Floyd & is an early indicator of what to expect from this experience.
Tracks like Flight & The Good Night Sky are a outstanding slice of trance like psychedelia. I can imagine this being listened to in a room just doused in black light, joss sticks lit & melting into the comfort of a bean bag.
Culling the Heard is, as the title suggests even with it’s Dave Gilmouresque harmonies, one of the heavier moments on the album . Coupled with Headlights makes these both firm favorites on this opus.
This is Dream The Electric Sleeps 3rd album is a ruddy good album & their most elaborate offering to date.
