Earlier this week, hazy dream-pop music artists Peel Dream Magazine announced to Brooklyn Vegan their sophomore album Agitprop Alterna is due April 3 via Slumberland Records.  It’s the follow up to the 2018 debut album “Modern Meta Physic” which found itself on a couple of best-of lists for that year.  Click the link to read the article.

Peel Dream Magazine was founded by NYC’s Joe Stevens, who according to the press release created a mysterious, liminal tribute to the hazy end of ‘90s dream-pop.  After 18 months of writing and live shows with a shifting cast of band members, Peel Dream is back with Agitprop Alterna, an album that pushes the group’s dreamy, motorik sound to a deeply melodic and beautifully discordant place. This sophomore LP pays homage to the fuzzy, mod-ish pop of acts like My Bloody Valentine and early Stereolab, but it’s also indebted to stateside bands like Yo La Tengo and Rocketship that were cut from a similar cloth. It’s part Chickfactor, part Space Age Bachelor Pad; a shambolic, drone-heavy brand of minimalism, filtered through a cross-section of classic indie pop.

While it starts off like Bob Mould veering all his projects to a psychedelic state, ‘Pill’ most likely is the track that resembles MBV and it does so at glorious levels.   Can I get a gif image of awesomeness?  Listen to the track below.

By the way, they’re also on tour right now.  Unfortunately, they canceled their Toronto appearance.
