By far the most propulsive and volatile release from this collective thus far.


Another Asian Glow collaboration = Kodan feeling quite happy.

Well, this backstory is gonna take a while before we get to the actual review…
This is the new Asian Glow & sonhos tomam conta LP, dreamglow. Said artists both come from the capital city Seoul, in South Korea (edit: sonhos is actually from são paulo in brazil); they also create music of the wonderful genre of shoegaze (and emo). They’ve actually worked together previously on an album with fellow Seoul ... read more


EDIT 82->80: My biggest reason for this rating drop is Voices In Delirium being fairly forgettable, which is a massive sin in the context of an album like this.

Still definitely worth a listen if you’re into Asian Glow’s other stuff, or screamo and/or shoegaze in general.
