We’re getting to that point in the year where we’ve got to look back on 2017, and sometimes that means unearthing overlooked hits. One of those was was Dream Joints‘ Just Like Medicine, which luckily was dropped back into my mind via this brand new video from the record. It encapsulates the entirety of the LP: mysterious, dark and captivating. I can hear where fans of heavier psychedelia could get lost in here, but there are these little vocal turns that give out the faintest hint of pop accessibility like the “up in the window” line at 1.12. Feel free to explore more from the band by grabbing their LP from Bleeding Gold Records.
In my search for something a little different, I stumbled upon this new jam from Dream Joints, who will be releasing a 7″ with Bleeding Gold Records in the very near future. This track is the B-Side to that, filled with sampled percussion and an interesting wash of distortion fluttering in the background. The vocals are sunk deep into the heart of the song, with some added electronic textures thrown in to craft a deeper emotional appeal. Give it a listen and stay tuned for more from this project in the next few months!
