A horrible hack

Lotus Mason

Dreams Surreal

Year Released: 2010
Format: CD
Label: GlowB
Reviewed by Andy Malcolm on Nov 10, 2010
This band achieved album of the week and number 5 in Kiwi FM Chart! Holy shit! Anyway, Dream Surreal is some pretty inoffensive indie rock with a little electronic bluster harkening back to the "Madchester" glory days and whatnot. I suppose this is kind of somewhere between Interpol and the Killers or some non descript alt-rock band like that. The promo bumf says "Stadium Filling Sound", but the production is actually a little less than obnoxiously boomy, which probably helps make this surprisingly tolerable, just pointless and of little to no interest for anyone reading this fucking website. Next.

a densely-layered ambient album which at times brought to mind the work of Tranquility Bass
