Review: The Lucid Dream – Compulsion Songs

  What is the sound of space? NASA  has already solved this question, but the music fans, as romantic as they always will be like, imagine it being reverberated, droning and strangely hypnotic. Give me the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Quatermass, Hookworms and Aarktica and I’ll be happy. None in stock? It matters not, I see you have The Lucid Dream. Has it really been six years since we … Continue reading Review: The Lucid Dream – Compulsion Songs

Singles Reviewed – Everyone an army, Silent Front, A Clean Kitchen is a Happy Kitchen, Collider, The Lucid Dream, Torches

Greetings, readers who know that I am the eye in the sky, looking at you, I can read your mind. I am the maker of rules, ok? Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column. Granted, some of them aren’t singles, but I liked them and made my stupid human collaborators review ’em. A huevo que sí. 

This week’s singles come courtesy of the sausage sarnies from John’s Van. They be awesome, yo! I also like the one from Urban Deli, the one that looks like an electrical resistance coil (but doesn’t taste like that). Man, I need sausages. And sponsors. Can’t keep bigging up people for free!

Ah, singles, right:

Singles: Pistola Kicks, LickSpittle, The Lucid Dream, Ethan Ash, The Narrows, Stalking Horse

Greetings, readers drinking decaffeinated fair trade perry (wah wah remix) and nibbling spoons while the boss is singing the latest Coldplay dirge. Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column. Granted, some of them aren’t singles, but I liked them and made my stupid human collaborators review ’em. Problem?

This week’s singles come courtesy of Electro and his goofball villain persona. Not the gritty Electro that appeared on the Sin-Eater arc of Spidey. That depressed me when I was a kid.

Ah, singles, right:

Tripping the lucid light fantastic

The Lucid Dream – In your Eyes (EP)

The Skinny: Less lo-fi. Still noisy.

The review proper: The lads got a reverb and a vibrato pedal and are not afraid to use it. Swear to God, all that acid done in the 60s found its way into the water supply and after a few years of filtration, it’s coming back into our supplies, like all that bottled water that got filtered through eons in the limestone faults in the Peak District.

The Sloucher Mix CD – Autumn edition

Oh, dear, did you read that last comic we made and think: who can save us?

The answer,  sadly, will come ’round October. In the meantime, how does an entire free cd of music sound?

Old school reverberation…

The Lucid Dream – Erbistock Mill (EP)


The skinny: Extremely lo fi and noisy

The review proper: First of all, a quick apology for the band as they’ve sent this album a big while ago. The easiest way to describe the sound of The Lucid Dream would be to stand at the corner of lo fi and shoegaze and wait for the next car to pass to be driven by The Jesus and Mary Chain.
