Third album from KYO, the enigmatic product of Hannes Norrvide and Frederik Valentin's compact. For All The Same Dream they have collaborated with American vocalist Jeuru, a recent recruit into the city of Copenhagen. KYO's previous records are breathtaking instrumental works, and they have steadily earned the group praise on their own terms. Collaborating with Jeuru takes this exploration a step further and into territory uncharted in previous recordings. Jeuru's vocals stray from spoken word trysts to heartfelt cries and introspective sighs. The casually diaristic lyrics and the often conversational tone brings a very real immediacy into Norrvide and Valentin's world, gracefully illuminating its architecture and revealing the great forms all around. KYO's music always departed for freedom and arrived there promptly. Jeuru gives you a telescope, and with intimacy you explore. The fine blend of electronics and acoustic instruments is carefully balanced on All The Same Dream. Everything shimmers, turning you one way and then losing you the next, matching the vocals in a persistent sense of opportunity. Brilliantly pitched moments of abrasive electronics are a warm welcome, immersing you in a different time zone from that of the rhythmic pieces that lead you into a chilled metropolis. It feels like you've been walking these streets forever, from club to club, from scene to scene, but there's never enough time to dream between destinations.
