After the dense, absorbing bounds of Sam Wenc’s album Heart Music, the sparkling sides of Recall the Dream Breath feel relatively weightless. On the latest peek into the album, a collaboration with labelmate John Dieterich (Deerhoof), Wenc threads his melodies through tones and hues with a whimsical weave. The song sputters by like a clockwork diorama, blissfully buoyant, until a bout of tension begins to unravel the last minute. Wenc and Dieterich charm listeners with their wonderland before the skin begins to slip and the bolts show through, their jagged air a juxtaposition to the first half’s benign bliss. The new album is out January 20th from Moone Records. In addition to Dieterich, the record also contains contributions from Kyle Field.
