DREAMING IN SOUND
The mega VA Compilation for Dreamers

Trying to see past the hazy, misty fog covered landscape you hear the music and suddenly what lies ahead doesn’t really matter. If this is what faith sounds like keep walking with your eyes closed and always remain Dreaming in Sound.
-Shoegazer Sanctuary Music

Dreaming in Sound was created for the sole intent of spotlighting the talents and sound of every artist involved. So links to more of their music are listed in multiple within each track description. Before this album was released the permission and advice of every artist included was confirmed.

Shoegazer Sanctuary Records exists for the Promotion of the Artists involved. This endeavor is a non-profit venture. No profitable funds to SSR will be gained. Any donations will go directly to fees associated with this bandcamp site maintenance and the creation of more, for the time being, promotional compilations.

Under the Wire releases Everything Haunts MePosted on February 2, 2015 by BAXTER LABATOS Leave a commentBand: Under the WireAlbum: Everything Haunts Me.Songs: I am nothing/Oceans are none/Drifter now/Down/Black out/Melancholy/Self Medicated.What you can expect from every Under the Wired releases is the electricity that flows through each song. There is the freshness yet the nostalgic not to the great bands of the 80s. I like to imagine them as a band that continue to carry the torch of great music without sacrificing their credibility to the evil of mainstream pop.Everything Haunts Me is the new EP, which is their second, and contains 7 tracks. I am nothing has a mellow style with chilled beats. The fullness of the music is done by layering. Under the Wire is comprised of two people: Tom Lugo and Jason Ellis. I am nothing reminds me of old This Mortal Coil. Remember the 4AD project headed by Ivo Watts-Russell in the 80s? I am not sure if UTW have embraced the 4AD credo but I can sense a bit of that in this EP.Oceans are None is explosively beautiful. I haven’t heard something like this in ages. The only artists that come to mind are Peter Gabriel and early Sarah McLachlan. The beats are seductive. The vocals are really awesome. Like the first EP, the tunes from Everything Haunts Me showcase a distinct guitar style that shows its loyalty to the dream pop genre.Either it’s The Cure or Fiction Factory, Drifter now nods on these bands. Two thumbs up to the keyboards. And since I am not a lyrics guy I paid more attention to the sound effects than the stories behind the songs. But if you want to know what they are all about then I will tell you. They deal with either unrequited love, despair, loneliness, inner conflict-the stuff of Gothic rock. For some reason, Under the Wire makes depressing themes sound like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.There’s Down-a kind of suspense and moody tune in the vein of Siouxsie and the Banshees.  Blackout behind jangles with Bauhaus inspired chords and distorted drums. Melancholy has an ethereal style that reminds me of early Dead Can Dance and at times it’s Joy Division. Self medicated closes the EP and I think it is the most cinematic track in this EP.Under the Wire continues to challenge the status quo of music, as thesetwo musicians write and record tunes that you can never -and will never-hear again in alternative rock.
