This is is Midwesterner Spencer Harris’ debut full-length and it really pays homage quite well to its late 80s/early 90s shoegaze progenitors, especially the third track “False Positive” – a screaming homage to My Bloody Valentine’s “To Here Knows When.” Believe it or not, all of this work you hear is apparently of his own doing, save for the female vocals which he included in the credits below. The jangly guitars, and the dreamy hazy atmosphere exuded within Living Dream could rest among the likes of Lush and Ride, or quite frankly any 90s gazer band and not be out of place at all. This album just sounds like it could’ve come from twenty years ago. Spencer Harris is doing the neo-shoegaze movement proud and I hope he continues to do so! Living Dream is available to stream via Bandcamp below. As for the vinyl, it can come in either dark red, light red, purple, or blue. Tell me what you think of it. Cheers!
