"The eighteenth release by Los Angeles-based Lucky Dragons details the continuing pursuit of a humble and ecstatic, drippy and explosive, smoldering and upset music for our experience in America right now -- messages of unrest have long failed to be clearly understood, solitude and empty organization have given way to a very current volcanic desire for togetherness. Genre has never been less important -- influences and ideas are consumed and digested and released in the spirit of a culture larger than music as it is bought and sold. This is world music for a world that doesn't care about 'music' as we have packaged it for the last 100 years. You could call it post- noise, or post-anything you like, but we would prefer to call it pre-something. For this recording, the time is 2007-2008, the place is California. The name of the record refers to the landfill-island in Tokyo harbor where the original lucky dragon now lives -- 'dream island'-- and to the creation of imaginary languages -- 'laughing language' -- that can be used to express things our own languages can't. As with Lucky Dragons' legendary live performances, these recordings strive to create a space where community and memory and ritual and perspective all come together as a crystal and then vibrate and shatter." Includes 24-page booklet of drawings.
