a shoreline dream
A Shoreline Dream has been best described as creating “melodipsych night music” by combining lush sampled textures, waves of crashing guitars and a wall of vocals layered like a synth, similar in vein to bands such as Cocteau Twins, Porcupine Tree and Sigur Rós. Originating & recording in Denver, Colorado, through the years they have joined forces with German Mastermind Ulrich Schnauss and Mark Kramer (Low / Joy Zipper / Galaxie 500) on numerous releases, including their sophomore LP “Recollections of Memory”, the “neverChanger” EP, and their 2011 single titled “London”, which was written while singer Ryan Policky was on a visit to Ulrich’s studio...
After six years of self promotion through their own home brewed label "latenight weeknight records" the band found themselves branching in directions of experimental sound and recording techniques, utilizing their home studio to it's full potential. Every release to date has been fully in their control, with each track given as much love as the last, and every room in the home used in one way or another during the recording process.
2010 brought on multiple festival dates, including a featured slot at SXSW and Midpoint Music Festival. Later, in the fall, A Shoreline Dream opened for the legends of shoegaze, Chapterhouse, after coordinating the date with the band in London. This was Chapterhouse’s last show of their reunion tour while out in San Francisco, and quite possibly their last show ever.
After finalizing and releasing their sonic version of the Fleetwood Mac classic “The Chain”, a single released digitally in early 2011, a shoreline dream has finalized their third LP titled "losing them all to this time", and are priming it for a September 19th physical release (which happens to be the same date they released their first groundbreaking album in 2006 titled "Avoiding the Consequences"). The album will also be available digitally through all digital music networks and is currently being promoted via Filter Magazine PR and internal efforts.
This is Brim Liski. Happy depression. Electronic doom painted over with shimmering vocal layers and symphonic guitar tones. Dark, limitless night music perfect for driving down an endless moon drenched highway. Comprised of various underground producers in the US and The Netherlands, the project started in late 2008 and slowly but surely became an organic musical hydra. The debut release finds itself spanning eras of dark musical passages, polyrhythmic dance beats and deep, moving basslines all in which are inspired by the recent death of love, while also influenced by the blinding light of new beginnings.
the parallel light
Soundscaped Spaces created by Eddie Breidenbach of The Omens and Ryan Policky of A Shoreline Dream. Started in 2010 and created in the rolling hills of Barnum, while inspired by the towering Mount Evans. Under the management and label of www.latenightweeknight.com.
The first of an ongoing line of projects started by Ryan Policky, Pure Drama first began writing it's unique brand of music back in 1997. The duo of Policky and Becca Gomez moved through the years, gaining fans in the gothic and trip hop communities, eventually landing them a deal with Cleopatra Records in July of 2001. Erik Jeffries joined the duo on guitar and the band slowly morphed into a full fledged organic project with a sound unlike any other.
Currently the band is in hiatus status as they have been inactive since 2003, but latenight weeknight records is currently in talks of releasing a new EP in 2007 for the band.
