The Evangelicals' Bloodstream Dream
The Evangelicals' The Evening Descendsis a long-playing dream state, but it also includes the crossing into dreams - the dark chasms and little whirlpools of space and time that appear and disappear in the moments between consciousness and descent, or ascent, depending on whether you fall or rise into a dream. The band has been clearly influenced by and compared to Flaming Lips, and yes, the album superabounds with psychic space trash. That's the delight. Take this song, in which the dream state is, for the first time ever, induced with guitar and keyboard shredding, with a whiff in the background of - call me a blasphemer - the Moody Blues.
