Mr. Dream


After last years' run of critically acclaimed singles ("Knuckle Sandwich", "Knick Knack", "Scarred for Life", "Learn the Language"), Brooklyn's Mr. Dream presents its debut album TRASH HIT. It's an ambitious rock record that marries extremes: harsh noise and catchy melodies, and straight-ahead pop sensibilities. This is music unabashedly working in the tradition of some of the greatest rock acts: Buzzcocks, Pixies, Nirvana, Guided by Voices, and the Breeders. Mr. Dream picks up where those bands left off, further exploring the textures of aggressive rock music that's unafraid to have strong hooks and thoughtful lyrics.
