Dreamend – As If By Ghosts (Graveface Records)
One look at the elaborate and beautiful packaging of Dreamend’s album and I knew there was something going on here. This is an album where every detail supports a dark, dreamy landscape. Sure, this band may have spent some time listening to Death Cab For Cutie, My Bloody Valentine, and Ride, but as far as influences on a noise rock band goes, them’s the tops!
MP3s: “Of Raven and Winds” and “Passing” via Dreamend’s site.
