DreamLand biography
Borderline new age, the symphonic prog of DREAMLAND will remind you of 70's style CLUSTER, FRIPP & ENO. They are basically a synth/guitar duo aided by a couple of friends who forge interesting sounds capes out of flutes, synths, guitars and clarinet. Keyboard player Johnny Rodriguez supplies some dense, eerie electronics while guitarist James Sidlo sculpts foreboding, buzzing guitar loops that give the music a vaguely apocalyptic feel.

Their only album to date, "Underwater" (2001), features some decent electronic ambiences made up of trance-inducing sounds and spooky, Gregorian-like deep vocal-electronic effects. The whole thing comes off as a little more daring, more disturbing than your average new age fluff. Some reviewer once described the album as 'a new-age symphony of noisy mellow wanderings". A fitting description.

Recommended if you appreciate the symphonic elegance of ambient music but wish it had more backbone.

Review by Greger
Prog Reviewer

2 stars DREAMLAND is a two-man ambient band that has reminiscences to Brian Eno and TANGERINE DREAM. The title of their album is "Underwater", and imagine that you' re underwater swimming, the water is filling your ears making every sound blurry, and you suddenly hear some floating psychedelic instrumental music. Then you have a slight idea of how some of DREAMLAND's music is sounding. This isn't music that I normally would listen to every day, but it's very relaxing and if you're in the right mood you might appreciate it.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to easy livin for the last updates
