LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Scant information exists in the historical record for early 1990s Bristol, England trio Dreamscape. Internet searches reveal almost nothing, and their entire discography consists of one 7" single and a four song EP, with a second four song EP having been recorded but never released. The group's members were Rebecca Rawlings, Scott Purnell and Jamie Gingell, the latter two also being the driving force behind the Sarah label stalwarts Secret Shine. The songs are perfectly constructed pop vignettes, soaring, atmospheric confections that are wholly in tune with the current wave of shoegaze revivalists. The group had no drummer, instead opting for an Alesis SR16 drum machine. But rather being a shortcoming, this was certainly a strength as the solid, unwavering repetition lets the guitars and vocals radiate in the stratosphere above. That aural pleasures such as these could not gain any wider attention in their own time is a shame. Hopefully this reissue will garner some of the praise the group should have received then."
