Comment: My first impression about the Strasbourg, French duo The Dreams was spawned approximately 6-7 years ago when they released an EP or was it a single under the French imprint Beko DSL. By hearing the first chords by them I knew it would be a favourite one within the discography of the imprint. Armelle Oberle, and Emmanuel Satti`s long-running issue is something very special because of getting power from different sources, however, nonetheless staying a stark rock and roll instance. For example, the issue starts off like a shamanic whirlpool with darkened rhythms, spacey organs and stoned guitars, which later will be shuffled and ordered otherwise. Their power emerges from a psychedelic music tradition though this might say nothing because the psychedelic pigeonhole is truly voluminous embracing an enormous number of movements and tendencies. However, they are not an usual exemplar because their organs are frequently amplified to a maximum and the Armelle Oberle`s voice and singing manner is exalted and ecstatic accompanied by low-end yet challenging cadences and always loud and resounding guitars. Furthermore, the duo used to chime obsessively similarly to Suicide, for instance. In general, one could discern similarity with other No Wave artists either. The Dreams shows us clearly it hides very future for rock music to get on with being not lame and cliché-filled. In a word, it is a swarm of excellent leftfield compositions.
