Slow Dancing Society – “These Dreams of Fire Burned Out” // Humberto Barajas Bustamante

Following up last year’s TERRIFIC release (it made my top 10 albums of the year!) “My Blue Heaven”, Slow Dancing Society has returned with “Prologue: The Magic Lantern.” With “These Dreams of Fire Burned Out”, Drew sets out to (successfully) prove drone can be beautiful. Sludgy, yet heady, drones fill the space of the track while still being immensely beautiful in a dark, heavy way. In the latter section, Drew’s signature fire-tinged guitar work sparsely shines through, adding yet another sonic layer to this complex, and emotional journey of a track.
