Lantern – Dream Mine
After a couple of killer cassettes on Night-People and also perpetually backing everyone’s favorite crooner Dirty Beaches, Lantern steps over to Bathetic with their new cassette Dream Mine.
The tape comes out sounding like a rotgut, long-lost Stooges bootleg (coincidentally, there is a seven minute version of the classic “I Wanna Be Your Dog”), but with a bunch of weird shit going on that breaks up the slurred rock, like the heroin-withdrawal rambling drone of “Fools Gold.” This tape is like dreaming of the hottest girl in class while you are actually face-deep in a vat of tar, gasping and choking, snorting and flailing.
Not for the faint of heart, this slab is hot ‘n’ raw, wild ‘n’ nasty. Voodoo drips off the tape as it unwinds. Dip in and get shanked.
