ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
*These are the last few remaining copies available from this much loved UK underground band*

\"Trippy, dreamy, spooky,the title track of Dreamfield\'s Christopher\'s Dream is a perfect cd for the chill room - hypnotic female vocals, chill out beats and scratching turntables. High noon acoustic guitars and great use of effects create a very unique and ear pleasing sound\".

Dreamfield were formed in London 1999 by former Mojave 3/Sing-Sing pianist Poppy Gonzalez & songwriter Gregg Mckella and later joined by Amy Tucker in 2000. After two critically accalimed releases and some interesting live performances including a televised live performance in the Charlie Chaplin Museum of Modern Art Estonia, Dreamfield have sadly called it a day and no longer perform as a live band.

The band sited \'dub, trip-hop, psychedelia & \'cheesy latin 60s music\' as some of their influences, have a \'penchant for long brooding notes of an undefined nature\' and specialize in a trippy grooves and \'organic instrument mix\' which makes for a intoxicating coctail distinctly their own and earned them a loyal fanbase.

This CD also brings you big beat remixes from London\'s dj \'H\' and ink 1 musician Peter Dahl Collins.

FAC 193 -Jack Alberson

a juxtaposition of the Bacharach-soaked electronics and that somewhat sinister B
If Dreamfield member Poppy Gonzalez’s name sounds familiar, it may be from her stints with Mojave 3 and her guest appearance on the debut disc from London’s Sing-Sing. As one-third of Dreamfield, her vocal is delicate and dreamy, breathy, sexy—lots of great descriptives come to mind. The music? A pop band with an interest in soul-searching jazz, cabaret pop and the Chemical Brothers. A juxtaposition of the Bacharach-soaked, electronics and that somewhat sinister Bad Seeds sound. “Christopher’s Dream” in its original version and in two stellar remixes beckons for headphones, late nights and wine. “Alive” burns with a crawling intensity. If you haven’t heard this band yet, believe me, you’re bound to eventually. They will be big, the kindness of Fates pending.

...as memorable a first snog as you could hope for.
"Christopher's Dream" - that single's erstwhile, ultra-spooked follow up - is as memorable a first snog as you could hope for...

...They're based in Brighton and have an unerring knack for plying dub-by grooves with the sweetest of vocal nectar...

"Christopher's Dream" undoubtedly is, and the band's own suggestion that it's a great headphone listen also rings true. This is cool stuff to drift into your own space with...

Second track "Alive" reinforces the potent air of mystery, while - for a change with these things - the two (very different) re-mixes of "Christopher's Dream" are actually worth the time of day.

DREAMFIELD, then, are a bloody smart trio with both talent to burn and the kind of creative, independent attitude of which we will always heartily approve. (click link for full review)

Enchanting and captivating, ‘Christopher’s Dream’ is quite magic ...
There’s something strange going on in the music scene right now. We’re seeing a slow merge of the electronica and indie genre.

With ‘Dreamfield’, we are beginning to see the merge in all its glory – a soft acoustic guitar plays in the background whilst some smooth synth sounds warble across the airways, along with a mystifying woman singing about Chrissy boy...

Outsight

trip-hop with female vocals and a lazy, after-hours jazz feel...
English band Dreamfield offers a hazy, trip-hop with female vocals and a lazy, after-hours jazz feel. Fans of In The Nursery side project Les Jumeaux will really appreciate this dark and beautiful music…

Andy Chapman

Christopher's Dream is beautiful, oddly moving and amazingly original...
The many hours invested as a reviewer becomes at once worthwhile when you find that hidden paradise hidden in the mp3 desert. And here I am swimming in the waters of the oasis once more.

Oh yes... Dreamfield's 'Christopher's Dream' is an excellent track. It's beautiful, oddly moving and amazingly original. I can't think of a single band that I've heard that sounds remotely like this...As I sit here listening I have the urge to close my eyes and let these waves of ambience overwhelm me. There's so much room to breathe - a perfect example of understatement...And when the song's chorus kicks in... well, that's just audio perfection. I'm definitely in love.

Star Polish

elements of the introspective inventiveness of Radiohead-the bizarre strangeness
“Take Me With You” brings us the soundtrack to the Carnival Cruise you never wanted to go on. With such a dark, foreboding intro, I found myself feeling like I was being slowly tugged across the Styx (the river, not the rock band) with Kathie Lee Gifford in a black hooded cloak as my only companion. Yikes! If you're in the right mood, this song trips us into the quicksand, and the lyrics are so delicate and melodic you won’t want to recover. I hear elements of the introspective inventiveness of Radiohead, the bizarre strangeness of Bjork, and the vocal prowess of Hooverphonic. Dreamfield is all of these things, and at the same time none of these things. If those names mean anything to you, “Take Me With You” is definitely worth 3:56 of your time. -J. Bills

BBC Collective

Sticking with songwriting credibility and layering it with brooding production,
Dreamfield sound like Portishead with pop sensibilities,
but in a good way, ie, an ear for a tune.
This could be something to do with the involvement of Poppy Gonzalez,ex member of indie folksters Mojave 3.
Sticking with songwriting credibility and layering it with brooding production,discordant horns, scratching and hairisingly dirty drums was a very good idea indeed.
It's backed by another track and some good mixes.

Dream Sequence

When alpha waves wash over you...."blissfully engaging," "darkly moving," and "s
.."blissfully engaging," "darkly moving," and "strangely affecting." From the organic melodies and the occasionally sci fi-esque rhythms, to the beautifully crafted harmonies of the siren-song vocals, Christopher's Dream pulls you into a lush world of imagery. "Alive" is a quirky, intense psychedelic trip on a train without tracks; a plane without a destination. This unpredictable piece makes me feel a bit strange, and it should--because it's a truly genre-less piece in a world where genre often defines whether a track has any value...This new release is highly recommended listening on a great stereo system (or at least great headphones) late at night with a glass of good red wine.(click link for full review)

Legends Magazine

"Beautifully mastered with lush vocal tracks"...
"there’s a non-formal psychedelic tinge of clarinet Gregg McKella blends into the body of each of these four songs providing structure for the rich vocal harmonies inside Poppy Gonzalez and Amy Tucker"...

"Beautifully mastered with lush vocal tracks, deeper bass lines and drawn out sythns to add a mysterious tone"...

" you may want to sit a spell in your bark-a-lounger and eat your cheese puffs all night listening to Dreamfield (see I just gave you something to do)"...
(May Wiseman)

High noon acoustic guitar - A very unique and ear pleasing sound.
Trippy, dreamy, spooky, Dreamfield's Christopher's Dream is a perfect cd for the chill room. The hypnotic female vocals lead the chill out beats and scratching turntables. High noon acoustic guitar and great use of effects create a very unique and ear pleasing sound.
