Low Light Dreams 12"


First forward-thinking musicians began experimenting with electronic instruments, then some abandoned the traditional band setup (and the band) entirely for the computer. It's a trend that has been observed by New Zealand native Bevan Smith (aka Signer) for many years, abandoning his accoustic past and embracing the burgeoning electronic scene of the mid 90s, Bevan has attained considerable accaliam for his work under the Aspen and Signer monikers. Yet after some time working within the electronic domain, Bevan began to feel constrained by the digital music making process. It had become as formulaic as the indie rock he abandoned in the 90s. It was time once again for something new. ‘Low Light Dreams’ explores a sound that Bevan himself calls 'nu-indie': incorporating elements from first-wave post-rockers like Seefeel, dub-influenced techno, and some of the more blissed-out items from the Kranky catalog.The result sounds like it should be prominantly placed among Chain Reaction’s best.
