Dreamed: "Izumi"

Thanks to Defensive Listening for the heads up on Dreamed, the bedroom recording project of Denton’s Jessica Minshew. One of the stark “skeletons of songs” that she recently posted up on her Soundcloud page, “Izumi” elicits a hazy, soft-focus melancholy that sticks around longer than you’d expect. The song recalls the subtle but substantial emotional weight of the first Beach House record, as it swells into a legit heart-wrencher over the span of just a few listens, mostly on the strength of a simple and moving melody and Minshew’s haunting, lovesick vocals. Listen below, and read more about Dreamed here. --Chris Cantalini, Gorilla Vs. Bear
