Dreamswell

Weekend Warrior - July 12 - 14

Dreamswell will be celebrating its debut full-length LP SPOILED with a performance this evening at Boot & Saddle. Haunting, weighted ambiance quakes and shudders throughout the album. The songs sonically realize ominous, brutal, bombarding tones that melodically shred within treacherous terrains. Somehow during those nightmarish, ominous sequences, as the percussion pulverizes, one finds a peaceful, placid, shoegazing perspective. Dreamswell will be supported by the raw, raucous, mesmerizing metal of Witching and the rhythmically rolling, synth-fueled darkwave of SOLD, as well as NYC’s Stay at Home Dads. – Michael Colavita

New Dreamswell LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

SPOILED, the first full-length album from the quartet of Dreamswell, is out now. The band transports you to its quaking, gauzy underworld, with its latest release. Peaceful/pummeling melodies forge ahead and invite you to follow them to desolate spaces, providing room to explore your own thoughts. On Friday, July 12, Boot & Saddle will host Dreamswell’s record release show, with Witching, Sold, and Stay At Home Dads.

   

New Dreamswell EP Available for Streaming & Download

Yesterday, the quartet of Dreamswell delivered its new EP Act 2. Blistering backend propels the doomgaze sound, aided by scorching guitar and the calming frost of ethereal vocals. Caught up in the hazy turbulence, one can find catharsis. You can catch the band’s EP release show this Sunday, January 28 at Boot & Saddle, where they'll be joined by Aster More, Katie Jo Knaub, and Haunted Homes, as part of Black Dog Gallery: Music & Art Collaboration (A Benefit Show for Planned Parenthood).

   

New Track: "Illusionist" - Dreamswell

"Doomgaze" outfit Dreamswell is fronted by Gina Piccari (vox/guitar), who is backed by Deli favorites Candice Martello (Hemming, ex-Omar) on guitar and Madalean Gauze on bass, with Jon Martello on drums. The group recently shared "Illusionist," its latest sirens' call from Hades. It's a slow-burning yet hauntingly explosive single that will be found on the band's forthcoming EP. Now, put on your headphones, press play, and feel free to soil yourself. ;-)
