Podcast 64: Melodies in Distortion

A Dreamweapon Production
Dreamweapon is the nonsensical alias being used by Damon Way, an individual, for the purposes of presenting various sound odysseys aimed at lost decades and mixed generations of dreamy drones.

Melodies in Distortion covers the pedal-attacking pioneers of the early shoegaze movement, paired with the contemporary Wah armed gangs of the newgaze formation, then sidelined by a mind melt of the space-rock and drone-driven pedal pushers. Enjoy this leap through the decades.

Nice mix. If you dig this stuff, check out Kitchens Of Distinction, Moose, 14 Iced Bears, Drop Nineteens, Chapterhouse, and, of course, Lush. Calgon, take me away!

You are correct... Upon seeing this I quickly realized that the issue stemmed from the way iTunes imported the tracks into my computer... mixing the A and B sides, which then got me use to looking at them this way... and then coupled with me not looking at my vinyl copy of this EP in years... the joys of digital. Thanks for catching this!!!
