From the opening track of "Dreamsong," this latest album from A Shoreline Dream transports you back to a time when you'd hear bands like Slowdive, Ride and the early Verve plumb the melancholy depths while other rock acts were trying desperately to be Nirvana or Pearl Jam. Losing Them All to This Time showcases Shoreline's fusion of electronic with the merely electric, creatively balancing sonic forces by using drums as atmospheric and rhythmic instruments rather than shoving them into the background or just relying on them for texture. "Fault 67" illustrates this balance perfectly: Sean Merrell's percussion is sensitive and expertly syncopated throughout. This is rainy-day music to chase away rainy-day moods.
