THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Dreams In Splattered Lines fuses together Wolf Eyes’ 25 years of DIY electronics with the avant-garde sensibilities of Fluxus and the granite of dreary Midwestern life.
Continuing some of the ideas explored on the Difficult Messages record of collaborations, the result is a surreal dreamscape of disorienting sound collages, where hit songs are transformed into terrariums of sonic flora and decimated fauna. As if pulled from a fever dream, the surrealists of the 1960s converge with alien electronic blues musicians in an underworld of mystery. The air is thick with car wash radio white noise, crackling and fizzing like a toxic elixir, spoken word poetry transmissions as absurd and cryptic phrases. Each corroded aural environment is a microcosm of chaos, honed to razor-sharp precision. Swept away in a whirlwind of 13 perplexing narratives, each one an unpredictable journey through subterranean worlds, a sonic trip of reality folded into itself.”
