Lost in the Endless Sound

August 26, 2009


2007 saw my complete emergence in electronic music. At first, I tried to force myself to make sure the Strokes and Arctic Monkeys still made a rotation on my iPod, but as 2009 approached, indie rock was almost obliterated from my musical selection. “Dream City,” the thunderous first single from DFA signees Free Energy is a reminder not to forgot this genre. Debatably  the feel good song of the year, “Dream City” launches straight away into a 60’s sounding riff that feels of the moment and a nod to yesteryear at the same time.

“Here we’re coming out, kids across town / Dream like there’s nothing to scream about. / And we’re riding through the night, / Tryin’ to get around, / In love with that electric sound.”

…. sounds like a Dream City.
