MidPointMusic: great presentation with @topicdesign at the AMA luncheon Friday. enjoyed the folks we met and learned much!
A Shoreline Dream
There’s definitely a tendency toward Shoegaze and Stoner Rock in A Shoreline Dream’s sound, exemplified by sheets of rippling guitar chaos. At the same time, there is a love of gorgeous Space Rock and hushed ambience at the heart of ASD’s sunrise, with influences like the Cocteau Twins, Sigur Ros and Dead Can Dance bubbling to the surface and making perfectly beautiful sense within the cacophony. A Shoreline Dream creates a universe of guitar squall then aims it straight for the cleansing singularity of an ambient black hole, where it emerges both adrenalized and becalmed. Fasten your seatbelt; it’s going to be a bumpy (and great) ride.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Divers that are slow, drivers that swerve, black emperors that are godsped, floyds that are pink, bunnymen that are echoed and the dancing dead. (Brian Baker)
