Matthew Young Recurring Dreams on LP

Matthew Young's genre-bending, acclaimed 1986 release Traveler's Advisory reappeared as a reissue on Drag City/Yoga in 2010 and quickly sold out. They now return to Young's first effort, Recurring Dreams, dating back to 1981 and the apex of the Eno/Berlin schools' influence over a myriad of American followers. Young created eight EMS/Rhodes pieces solo, subtly weaving in variable-speed Revox manipulation of traditional rock instrumentation with the lightest of touches.

As anyone who has heard Traveler's Advisory already knows, Matthew Young could never be a mere imitator. What all too often amounted to predictable schtick in the field of early ‘80s home electronica, Young made personal, delicate, discreet, and discrete. Wordlessly illustrating its titles - "Version, Inversion," "The Forest Of Lilacs," and "Mistral" (a strong, cold, northwesterly wind), Young conjures vivid, progressive tones of the unknown.

Recurring Dreams requires repeat listenings to fully reveal its Bonsai-like qualities. Fans of Erik Satie, JD Emmanuel, private-issue new age or the more placid side of minimal synth should take note of this one. Drag City and Yoga Records are proud to reintroduce Matthew Young's Recurring Dreams!
