Post Rock Post – Dream the Electric Sleep

This post on Dream the Electric Sleep’s Heretics is conveniently timed with the release of their third album, Beneath the Dark Wide Sky, set to release later this month. But back to the business at hand - Heretics. The strength of Dream the Electric Sleep lies in the contrast between the layered, soaring vocals, the muddy hypnotism of the repetitive rhythm section, and in the jarring moments when that carefully constructed hypnotism is suddenly broken. With this pattern operating as the base of Heretics, the band is able to successfully experiment because they can always return to the refuge of that soporific rhythm.
