In the tradition of the classic album-producing bands of the twentieth century, Lavish Cat created music covering the range of human emotion and experience, without the agenda of defining or exemplifying a particular "genre" or "scene". Their one CD, "Your Dream" was spearheaded by duo Greg Dember (now leading CHIEFLY) and Linda Ceriello, but relies on a musically tight-knit group of friends and artistic co-spirits.
The Disk is heavy on beautifully rendered, introspective ballads ("In Starlit Days", "Everything", Believe Me", "In My Screen") but perks up with the wah-pedal/piano rave-up "Would You Rather Be The Sky" the neo-psychedelic folk romp "Sunflower," and the hyper-speed lounge "All I Can Do". Rounding out ten songs are the title song ("Your Dream"), which sounds like a television theme song for people who don't watch TV, the whimsical tribute "Jonathan Richman" and the nostalgic "Shall We Dance".
