Melting Vinyl and Lewes Psychedelic Festival present:

Carlisle psych-rockers The Lucid Dream return with new album Actualisation, soaked in the influence of acid house, amalgamated with dub and komische. It will again see them acknowledged for venturing into pastures new, setting themselves apart from ‘genres’, ‘scenes’ or what any other act are currently doing.

The Lucid Dream formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in 2008. A string of sold-out 7″s was followed by the debut longer player, ‘Songs Of Lies and Deceit‘, in August 2013. The album gained critical acclaim from the likes of Uncut, Q, Rocksound, Clash, The Quietus, and leading French culture magazine, ‘Les Inrocks‘, to name a few. The initial vinyl pressing of the debut album (500 copies) sold out within 2 days, and was backed by a main stage slot at Kendal Calling, and supports to Death In Vegas and A Place To Bury Strangers.

Their upcoming album ‘Actualisation’ was recorded at Whitewood Studios in Liverpool. The confrontational techno-punk of ‘Alone In Fear’ opens the album, a 9-minute attack fueled by the frustration and anger spawned by Brexit, government and a realisation of what 2018 Britain currently is. Recent single ‘SX1000’ (the first work from the album, unveiled via 12′ vinyl in April this year) is the band’s first move into pure acid house. This track picked up plaudits via the iconic Andrew Weatherall and Bernie Connor. The acid house fusion runs throughout the record, represented furthermore by ‘Ardency’, a track already praised by live critics when aired live for the first time earlier this year as ‘even on first hearing, would’ve raised the roof of The Hacienda’.

“they’ve quietly found themselves elevated into the psych scenes premier league.” Drowned In Sound

“The Lucid Dream are rapidly becoming major players in an ever-increasingly crowded psych scene..utterly seductive.” The Quietus

Man Ray Sky:
We are thrilled to announce that Brighton‘s Man Ray Sky will be supporting The Lucid Dream Melting Vinyl show on Nov 22nd at The Green Door Store!
Man Ray Sky describe themselves as makers of melodic songs and improvised noise.
“Their approach to songwriting is deconstructive and relies upon the surprise of subversion. They never let themselves get too conventional or too pretty. This destruction of the status quo ensures that the tracks they play are always unique and deliver the shock of the new”. The Brighton Source
Prepare for soaring vocals and cutting guitars, on a night that won’t disappoint!
