Dream Joints’ long awaited debut 7” perfectly encapsulates the hauntingly catchy nature of tripped out garage rock aficionado Mike Turi’s (Wild Wild Wets, The Old In Out) solo project. The A side, ‘So Much Fun’ finds him awash in dirty, droney synths. Languid vocals are smeared, dream-like, across the tracks noise pop face. It’s a sound that somehow feels as uplifting as it is foreboding. B side, ‘Dust’, a dirgey, psychedelic tinged dive into a rock and roll wasteland, follows suit. Pairing a hypnotic progression with tinkling, pulsating keys, ‘Dust’ is as much the soundtrack for long drives through the dark empty of desert, as it is for sweaty, gritted teeth nights in packed underground clubs.
With the gloomy psychedelia of The Growlers, the spaced out vocals of Jesus & Mary Chain and the expansive instrumentation of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dream Joints weave together a patchwork of influences to create a unique sound that stretches from vampiric to blissful. All the while sounding immediate and absolutely vital.
