Marine Dreams 'Corner of the Eye' (album stream)
Published Sep 16, 2013Attack in Black are no more, but the members are evidently still tight, since Ian Kehoe recorded his latest album as Marine Dreams with onetime bandmate Daniel Romano. Corner of the Eye is out on September 24 through You've Changed Records, and it's available to stream ahead of time on Exclaim.ca.
The album was created with collaborators Ross Miller, Ian Romano, and Tamara Lindeman in a basement in Welland, ON. Inspirations reportedly include Tom Petty, Lee "Scratch" Perry and painter Henri Rousseau.
These 10 songs sport tuneful melodies, acoustic strumming and toe-tapping grooves, with the unfussy production keeping everything sounding scrappy and simple. "How Can I Be So Misunderstood" features a minimal arrangement of watery guitar licks and prominently bouncing bass, while cuts like "Morning" and "Roots Come After Lengthy Waits" are more breezy and sonically soothing.
