the lucid dream
songs of lies & deceit
great pop supplement
honed in on fuzz & drone heavy nods to Spacemen 3 & Spiritualized, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Brian Jonestown Massacre & The Heads whilst demonstrating some pure pop savvy, the Cumbrian outfit finally unleash their debut full length.
Fused by small town boredom & a mentality to break the mould, the lucid dream siphoned the spirits of the aforementioned key influences, to suitably shape their live repertoire in an old textile factory, overlooked by a disused gas works. The white noise that opens the first 9 minutes of the album is by no means indicative of the album as a whole. Tracks such as 'In Your Eyes', 'Love In My Veins' & 'Heartbreak Girl', ultimately owe more to the psych pop of The Stone Roses, The Byrds, The Ronettes & C86 era Primal Scream. a great album & a real grower.
