Saturday Lucky Dip
This week's random offering is Dream Pop a Mojo compilation from April 2010.
Full of hippy trippy ethereal stuff such as Panda Bear, Sweet Billy Pilgrim, Beach House and Sigur Ros - pleasant enough but I like a little bit more meat on my musical bones.
Half Asleep by School of Seven Bells passes muster and came close to being selected as did a lovely instrumental Sempiternal Darkness by Felt.
Bluebeard by the Cocteau Twins was always going to get the nod and after a wee bit of pondering Tell Me by Galaxie 500 was awarded the second slot.
I shall leave you with these words from Edgar Allan Poe
They who dream by day are cognisant of many things which escape those who dream only by night
Quote that to your boss the next time you get caught daydreaming!
Cocteau Twins - Bluebeard
Galaxie 500 -Tell Me
More random nonsense next Saturday
