Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 sophomore album from Baltimore's Crazy Dreams Band. War Dream is saturated with heaviness, Psychedelia, pomp and grit, and noticeably lacking any nostalgia hang-ups. Lost love, genocide and forgotten histories collide with raw-dog vocal thundering, slippe ry bass frequencies, adventurous percussion and seductive guitar ripples. Opener 'Feels So Good' is a swirling dirge that could be a half-figured-out version of 'Carouselambra'. 'Awkward for Everyone' showcases recent addition Jorge Martins of Lisbon duo Fish & Sheep playing what sounds like a deflating blow-up Les Paul copy that actually has strings-you've got to hear the killer solo! The side-long 'Life Is the Knife' is like a secret ritual from an unreleased Billy Jack sequel where he went back to Vietnam and built a temple that bled the purest opium. Here, Jake Freeman's adventurous sub-frequencies and Nick Becker's saucy space wanderings shine on to break the dawn in half.
