Album Review

Dreamend – “So I Ate Myself Bite By Bite” – [Graveface]

Dianthus   11/7/2011   12-inch, A Library

Members of Black Moth Super Rainbow and the Appleseed Cast have created a vision of mystique and uber exisitance on Dreamend’s album: “So I ate myself, Bite by Bite”. This album weaves through an idea of dark and sometimes horrific thoughts of one man’s daily negotiations with himself all musically accompanied by indie-folk- shoegazey stylings. The post- rock almost sweetened vocal singing disguises the protaganist lyrics of songs like “Pieces” which decribes the gory and very intimate details of commiting a murder. The following tracks then transistion into other songs describing the serial killers appetite for more until the 10 minute final track titled “An Admission”. Musically the album evolves starting with toy sounding twinkles to a more dark and driving bass line headed by Ryan Graveface’s bass. Either way, I do have to confess I like Dreamland’s pursuance to create musical art with a touch of lucid insanity hidden under an indie-rock rainbow.
