If ever I were to hide away from this cruel cruel world, I’d find my way to the broken shady gardens of Boston’s The Great Valley. Their weathered, worn, and wild brand of “spooky” pop has meshed perfectly with my internal reel to reel. The fabulous swirling distorted LP In The Silver Dream is what has currently sent me ablaze. I’d like to say I’m crazily dancing to it right now, but I’m not that skilled. This music is bringing about more of a wild sway and stumble. Its quite the spectacle actually. Anyway, the album was recorded in a mysterious abandoned house with mysterious retro equipment and features even more mysterious lyrics and themes. The great news is that The Great Valley and their music is not too mysterious to find and listen to. In fact you can pay what you want for a digital copy of the LP on their bandcamp or buy the brains pink vinyl version at SPKY TWN Records (their own label).
