If you were caught napping this week, or were relying on Facebook for your band updates, you may well have missed the long-awaited release of a new single from Jeff Kandefer’s The Daysleepers on June 24th. A dreamy slice of pop, not entirely like Drowned in a Sea of Sound, but still featuring many of the original flourishes that made that album a cornerstone of any dream pop library.
While The Daysleepers admit they’re a fully independent entity, relying solely on word-of-mouth to get the word out, it’s still a surprise that the band’s Facebook page appears to have been abandoned since 2010, and links to an expired domain. Still, the first rumbles from these revered dreampoppers will start tongues wagging immediately.
“Dream Within a Dreamworld” is available for purchase via iTunes, eMusic, CDBaby, and will start its rotation on our air tonight. Welcome back, friends! Let’s hope this is the first of much new music to come.
Stay updated with The Daysleepers via their Blogspot site, which includes lyrics and recording notes.
