Dream Weather Its Electric Song, the latest release from Portland’s enigmatic Half Shadow, resonates as a dream swelling into daylight vision, wrapping listeners in dark sparkling hues and mossy undergrowth. At times raw, minimal or softly psychedelic, the songs here inhabit the esoteric spaces between genres—incantatory folk, astrological rock and oceanic spoken word—without ever losing a sense of melody or the poetic, emotional lyricism Half Shadow is known for. Catchy, lo-fi and revelatory. For fans of Mount Eerie, Little Wings, Mega Bog, Marisa Anderson and Brigitte Fontaine, Dream Weather Its Electric Song is out now on Illusion Florist Records—buy or stream it here.
