Anne – Dream Punx – Review

By James Terry  //  Music Reviews  //  No Comments

Anne’s Dream Punx is a compilation of the bands mixtapes and demos out now on A389 Records. Chances are you never heard of Anne or checked out the demos. I for one was looking forward to the release of these mixtapes on vinyl so Dream Punx was a nice addition to my record collection.

This is a soundtrack for those moments when you are smoking a cigarette to release the stress of the day, the nights where you stare into the abyss that is your ceiling fan. Anne is a soothing soundscape that finds its way to ease your tensions. While as melancholy of a soundtrack it might be to some, All Your Time sets off like a night ride away from the setting sun.

Shoegaze is honestly a hit or miss with people you either get it and love it, or don’t and bitch about being bored. If you are a fan of My Bloody Valentine or any other shoegaze or dream pop band, Anne will be a breath of fresh air into your playlists. My favorite track off this release is definitely Get It How You Live, I can just stare off into the abyss as the needle drags and the record turns. The sonic waves move through the speakers like waves as stones skip over water.

If you need a change of pace, or a calming sensation, Dream Punx is a beautiful remedy. Call it pretentious art rock, shoegaze, dream pop, whatever you want; it is a great record and I cannot wait to hear what the band has in store for the future as they are currently tracking new songs. If my metaphors don’t make sense to you, simply watch this video. If the metaphors make sense to you, seriously pick up this record, it’s already one of my favorites. [James Terry]
