ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
*Just unearthed, a few last remaining hard copies for sale of the debut cd from this much loved UK underground band - Grab it while you can*.

\"Laid-back grooves and drum loops reminiscent of Portishead accompany smooth vocals that alternately remind me of the Cranes of the Sneaker Pimps -This is an awesome 3-song single\" -

\"Dreamfield\'s debut CD \"Take Me With You\" has not left my CD player in almost 2 weeks now - Music to lose yourself to - Try it and see\"

Formed in the london uk by songwriting partners Poppy Gonzalez (former Mojave 3/Sing-Singpianist) & Gregg Mckella (Paradise 9, Jeanette Murphy)& later joined by Amy Tucker (The Whims) - critically acclaimed Dreamfield no longer perform as a live band but their mixture of \'dub, trip-hop, psychedelia & cheesy latin 60s music\' won them some hardcore fans.

Dreamfield music has a \'penchant for long brooding notes of an undefined nature\'and dreamy female vocals, which drifted over a trippy beats/organic mix,this makes for a intoxicating coctail that was distinctly their own.

Founder member Poppy Gonzalez went on to form \'Hush Collector\' whose debut release the \'Flowby ep\' is also available from CD Baby.

*Also available at CD Baby - Dreamfield 2nd release - \'Christopher\'s Dream\'*

Captivating!!!
"Take me with you" is captivating and haunting. The music takes you to another world immediately. My only complaint is this is a very short CD so the escape is shortlived, still, I have no regrets with my purchase as this is one of those rare finds that will always have a special place in my collection.

Bulaka Magazine UK

...having been named "the band you can dance to sitting down", this single is
dreamfield have always been one of our favourite bands on bulaka, and this single is amongst the reasons why.

although recorded some time ago, take me with you is a prime example of the dark, melodic sound the band create. imagine being stuck in a car in the middle of a storm, miles from home. dreamfield are the soundtrack to that situation. screaming feedback overlayed on magical piano. haunting vocals augment the arrangement...

distant skies is yet another brilliant track. tinkling percussion and a haunting, almost anthem like vocal from poppy...

...the short-wave remix is somewhat akin to the laid back drum and bass remixes of whale's hobo humpin slobo babe.

this is still an excellent single and one which you should make plans to get your hands on, whatever the cost.

This is an awesome 3-song single, Dreamfield produce lovely music for late-nite
****1/2 stars.

"The Dream is the hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanitarium of the soul". SO reads the entrance to Dreamfield's official website, and listening to their music, it seems like they know what they're talking about. A female-fronted dreampop/trip-hop outfit from the UK, Dreamfield produces lovely music for late-nite listening. Laid-back grooves and drum loops reminiscent of Portishead accompany smooth vocals that alternately remind me of the Cranes of the Sneaker Pimps. This is an awesome 3-song single (get it for $5 at CDBaby, www.cdbaby.com!) containing the title track "Take Me With You", a remix of the same, and a song called "Distant Skies". "Take Me With You" is a plaintive, yearning ballad that echoes sweetly in the mind. "Distant Skies" is a nostalgic turn, with lyrics as follows: "I smell the scent of a delicate fragrance/it's the brand you used to wear/Winds blow in the street now empty/WInds of time that swept this place so ghostly bare". This proves that Dreamfield has a fine lyrical sensibility, as well as sensual and infectious grooves. I'm eagerly awaiting a full-length album, but in the meantime I, and you, can listen to and download more yummy tracks at http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/62/dreamfield.html.

Pleasant dreams!

Rating: If you listen to it, they will come.

Dreamfield : Take Me With You (CD Single) - M4 Records, M4001CD.


Tracklisting : 1) Take Me With You
2) Distant Skies
3) Take Me With You (Short Wave Mix)


Dreamfield's debut CD "Take Me With You" has not left my CD player in almost 2 weeks now. I meant to get this review done a little sooner, but I've been struggling to find the right words to describe THIS sound I've recently been immersing myself in.

"Take Me With You" haunts me. It clings to me before, during and after I listen to it.

Within the delicious, purple tinged, fractal cover artwork, lies the soft yet tight percussion that begins the track (and washes over it throughout). This is soon covered with delicate, sparse guitar notes that in turn prompt the ethereal tones of the two vocalists which call out, softly commanding "Take Me With You". Dreamfield have controlled the sound of, for want of a better word, ambience, perfectly and it just begs you to listen to it again and again.

"Distant Skies" is another gorgeous slice of Dream-Pop that sings to me when the line "Look back, recalling moments left behind, I see the distance in these skies........." is sung. A thoughtful nod to the past perhaps.

I've read in a few places that Dreamfield's music has been likened to that of This Mortal Coil. Personally I find this only in the use of two female vocalists, which Dreamfield use to much stronger effect. The tempo of the music does remind me of the best Slowdive/Mojave 3 moments, although its real strength is in the vibrant space it creates and leaves you drifting in. Music to Dance to sitting down? Music to lose yourself to .......... Try it and see.

Dreamfield
Take Me With You
M4
At four o'clock on a Sunday morning, halfway between reality and your subconscious, there is a place where Dreamfield are on the decks, whispering in your ear and messing with your mind. This is definitely morning music, an alternative to your Grandfather's choice of Tchaikovsky, or the radio's selection of bright eyed, bushy tailed D.J.s. The artwork for the album is a kaleidoscope of colour, a dim fuzz of sunshine filtering through, and if colour could define sound then Dreamfield's easy purples and soft white blues would define theirs. Dreamlike voices float across their field, enchanting and bewitching whatever may be getting wasted in their way. 'I smell the scent of a delicate fragrance' it begins. Not content that you can hear them and see them, Dreamfield want you to smell them. The fragile sounds of a fragile mind.

Okay how about this? The music Dreamfield makes on this CD is like a long, sensuous veil of evening emerging from the dusk enrapturing the listener in tones that subvert & question reality with enigmatic musicality. Sounds a tad corny eh? Hmmmmmmmm. Well okay then try this. The music Dreamfield makes on this CD seems to color a shadowy world of emotions, moments and people through their opaque yet tuneful trance structures. Alright I didn't get that one either:)

Let's just say this CD ROCKS(!) and leave it at that okay? Chris




Robert Jansen - The Rob Report

"Take Me With You" is not only original, it has enough character to allow it and
Talk about mysterious. "Take Me With You" features a melodic/melancholic, yet sometimes angelic, sometimes creepy vocal. This use of the vocal delivery glues the listener to the song. The backing band is very *steady* and creative - how they can play at that slow a tempo is highly commendable. The melody wanders like a river - in an unpredictable manner and meanders it's way into a lush chorus which repeats..."Take Me With You"...Lovely. Warning - this is not a "plunk the CD in my car and whizz down the highway" song. It's very thought provoking and at times, relaxing. "Take Me With You" is not only original, it has enough character to allow it and the band to be instantly recognized in a sea of the music that is readily available.

100% Unnatural

To me, there's always been something a little bit creepy about British psychedelia, especially compared to the sun-baked Californian variety. Where San Francisco's Jefferson Airplane gave us "White Rabbit" and the Strawberry Alarm Clock sang of "Incense and Peppermints", England's Pink Floyd were screaming "Careful With That Axe, Eugene". Although they've since relocated to Boston, USA, the London-born trip-pop trio Dreamfield continue in that eerie tradition. The tracks available for download on their MP3 site fall somewhere between the Pentangles, Legendary Pink Dots, and Portishead... all of whom were pretty, yet at the same time pretty scary.

Did I mention that I like scary?


The single "Cristopher's Dream", which topped MP3.COM's leftfield charts a while back, is a perfect example of Dreamfield's aesthetic. Muffled drumbeats creep in the background as warped woodwinds slither around the mix. The overall effect is as spooky as Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Peek-a-boo", but without all the back-masking. Less overtly unsettling is "Marianne", a pleasant acoustic guitar-pop tune on the surface, though the layered mezzo-soprano female vocals of Amy Tucker and Poppy Gonzalez seem a bit like Sirens trying to crash listeners on the rocks.

While my one big complaint about most "ethereal" bands - that the song often gets lost under all the pads, reverb, and harmonies - holds true in the case of Dreamfield, it's not such a bad thing. Perhaps listeners won't remember every single one of the lyrics after the fact, but the music sounds great when it's on. And, at some level, isn't that about all that one can reasonably ask of any recording?

Naturally, these MP3's were never intended as a fully developed album statement. We'll have to wait several months yet for that. But, as a band, dreamfield definitely have their own, unique logic.

Dreamfield-- Take Me With You (EP)
Northeast London songwriters Popy Gonzalez and Gregg McKella create a lush soundscape with Take Me With You. Vocalist Linda McDonald's haunting voice gives the song a dreamy quality. This is not your typical electronica; the song has a pop sensibility. Take Me With You has a subtle hook and enough texture to attract even the curious listener. Dreamfield mixes equal parts psychedelia, trip-hop, and pop, which create a mood more than a song. The music seems to seep out of the speakers like a misty, swirling around the listener. - Kevin Maurer

...definitely grab it when you can. You won't regret it.
... the CD just flows.... so gorgeously. Constantly harmonized/layered female vocals, BIG BIG beats..... good god. Musical perfection. Sad thing is, they broke up.... but Poppy (singer) has a new band called Hush Collector, even though it's not really trip-hop, it's great to hear that voice again. If you can find the full-length Dreamfield record (possibly called Take Me With You, like the single), online or anywhere else, definitely grab it when you can. You won't regret it.
