JENNIFER GENTLE "I Do Dream You"
This piece first appeared on betterPropaganda.com last week.
The next time I dream that I am trapped in a world of puppets, muppets, and kids show hosts -- with traffic directed by out of work game show assistants and head-on collisions are a matter of fact occurrence. And the clowns, the clowns that call the sewers home are nice clowns... no, really... they are nice clowns -- the next time this happens the dream's soundtrack will be Jennifer Gentle's, "I Do Dream You".
This song is hard to describe, if you've listened to Ween you will hear some similarities -- there are bits of circus, carnival, and maybe something like Peewee's Playhouse lurking here. Here at Better Propaganda under the heading, 'Similar Music', it says Jennifer Gentle has like aspects of the band Low, perhaps... if Low ate a pound of coffee beans and then after donning Teletubbie suits they each inhaled a tank of helium... perhaps then. Or maybe they are referring to both bands working in their own worlds, creating their own space without regard to what is 'in' with the indie kids, but I prefer the smart ass jab about coffee beans, Teletubbies, and helium.
