Cumbria‘s The Lucid Dream finally unleash their debut full length this June, following 3 sold out 45s, steady press coverage and widespread acclaim for live shows which have seen them support everyone from Beefheart’s “Magic Band”, Death In Vegas, A Place to Bury Strangers and Spectrum.

Previous descriptions of the bands’ sound has honed in on fuzz and drone heavy nods to Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized, BJM and The Heads, yet that somehow overlooks the pure pop savvy and stripped down acid drenched hooks of the US West Coast and prime era Mary Chain and Beach Boys feel to tunes like “Heartbreak Girl” and “Love In My Veins”. To these ears, tips of the hat also include a favourable one towards Motown in places even, so to dig a wee bit here is no bad thing…

A great album and a real grower and sure to build upon the great reviews the 45s attained with accompanying radio play and press attention from the likes of Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne and Tom Robinson. The band tour in support of the album including slots supporting label favourites Sic Alps and the Liverpool Festival of Psychedelia in September.

Vinyl pressing of 500 is sure to sell out quickly- so we urge haste! The (tri colour, splatter) vinyl appears on The Great Pop Supplement here in an edition of 500 only with CD/ Downloads via Holy Are You Recordings.

Help support PIAS

When the news broke that the Sony/PIAS distribution centre was burned to the ground by mindless thugs, it was shocking on too many levels. I could wax lyrical about this all year, but now ain't the time for such ranting.

So myself and The Lucid Dream have decided we're gonna do what we can to help in some way. We all religiously buy music in it's physical form and empathise completely with the job that any smaller DIY labels are trying to do. What made it more real though, is people that we know and respect have been affected first-hand by this and are having to compromise their livelihoods.

If you visit and download the full unedited (the one that was too long to fit on the 7!) 'Devil Rides Out' remix by Richard Norris, for a whole English Pound, we will send over 100% of all sales to the current PIAS/AIM fund.

Also, if you're feeling extra generous visit and see how you can help.

Please, continue to buy music in it's beautiful physical form.  Independent labels and record stores are one of the few reasons this country has to be proud. Let's do all we can to help that remain.
