Noise rock trio Mr. Dream have had Ultimate In Luxury in the works for quite some time, and we’ve been hearing about it for around nine months. With every new song that’s trickled out, my fellow Stereogum writers have been very excited. And, finally, here it is. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the band doesn’t exist anymore. Stream the “posthumous” album and read the news below.
WAIT WHAT? POSTHUMOUS?
mr. dream played its last show about a year ago. i think it was at shea stadium? we have not been active since that show. the songs were recorded live in march and may 2013 at silent barn, and adam and i finished up the mixes and overdubs this spring. the vibe is “cassette you found in the used car you just bought.” somebody wrote that as a knock a while ago but i can’t think of a nobler goal for rock music in 2014. don’t forget to kick the wheels…
adam performs as FITNESS
adam and nick write songs as MONTREAL SEX MACHINE
nick writes songs with shamir bailey as SHAMIR
nick and jeremy krinsley are the remix team known as NEGATIVE SUPPLY
this is not a joke!
thank you for everything.
adam + matt + nick
