MICHAEL VIDAL SHARES VIDEO FOR ‘DREAMS (COME BACK TO ME)’
DREAM CENTER TO BE RELEASED 8TH JUNE ON COUPLE SKATE RECORDS
Couple Skate Records is excited to share the video for Michael Vidal‘s single ‘Dreams (Come Back To Me)’ from the debut album Dream Center.
“I crafted this video for his song ‘Dreams’ as a meditation on some of the themes I hear/see in Michael: mostly the joy that is it is possible to feel in the transubstantiation/breakdown of binary systems,” explains director Clare Kelly. Watch the video now on Stereogum.
Michael Vidal has stepped out of the combustible, hyper-color tropical punk of his former group, Abe Vigoda, and onto his own into more pastoral, lush territory. Dream Center is Vidal’s inaugural work, originally released onto cassette in 2013 from LA label Big Joy, reissued onto all additional formats from Couple Skate.
The music of Dream Center is a wonderful and diverse spectrum of looping, beautiful guitar pop (featured on ‘Dreams’ and ‘Appraisal’) that evokes the deeper emotional shades of the likes Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout, and crystalline instrumental pieces (‘Mono No Aware’) reminiscent of Vini Reilly’s Durutti Column and the earlier days of Felt. All touchstones aside, the music of Vidal’s Dream Center is an impressionist paean to love, loss, and existence, an promising new beginning for a uniquely creative spirit.
