Fire Note Says: A Shoreline Dream float on an open sea of dreams with their 333 LP.
A Shoreline Dream comes to us all the way for Denver, Colorado bringing with them a moody blend of ambient psych with a nice post-rock tinge. A neat idea, the 333 album was actually released as three separate EPs each bearing the name of 3. Once everything was said and done it was then reformed into the 333 LP. Each one being recorded and released over a 3 month span, each also having three tracks upon them. Each album issued to encapsulate a different mood, time, and influence within the band. The first one released, Three, influenced by open, mountainous landscapes, the second one, 3,gives more influences to the dark, ominous night, and finally the third, III, is based upon long drives and creating a sort of driving soundtrack. It’s an interesting experiment that gives some pretty neat and surprising results.
A Shoreline Dream’s 333 is a bold album, in points it can be classified as schizophrenic, but it can also give off an impression of similarity, but with consistency. It’s expansive without being overwhelming and it’s also subtle. It breaks the traditional mold of shoegaze but also gives a great impression to anyone deep in the genre. 333 isn’t for everyone but for anyone wanting to get drenched in a shoreline dream, I recommend taking this album for a spin.
Key Tracks: “Barnum”, “Eleveneleven”, “103”
