Brazilian shoegazer noise pioneers’ Low Dream complete catalog available

Formed in 1991, Brasília’s Low Dream released two albums, one cassete and a compilation of extras. Now their catalog is available in digital format. “Dreamland” (the demo), “Between My Dreams & the Real Things” (1st album), “Reaching for Balloons” (2nd album) and the compilation “Soundscapes” are also available in Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Google Music, Amazon Music and several others.

In brief:

low_dream_dreamlandDreamland (1992)
first demo tape, with 4 songs, produced by Geruza from the Brazilian punk-metal band Escola de Escândalos.
Released only on cassette tape, it sold approximately 800 copies. Original version had a blue cover, xeroxed in a crappy paper. So, we needed a new cover for the digital re-release. This one was designed by Low Dream’s drummer Giovanni Fernandes.

tracklist: Treasure (demo);  My Dear Ocean (demo); I Never Had Sugar Dreams (demo); Candy (demo)

capa_betweenmydreamsBetween My Dreams And The Real Things (1995)
first album with 10 songs, also produced by Geruza in his studio Artimanha (Brasilia).
The album bogged down more than a year of waiting until their label, Rock It!, was able to press it on CD. Although being distributed by major EMI, the album went to supermarkets and department stores and was stranded. Meanwhile, Low Dream broke out Brazil playing dreadful places.

tracklist: Lose My Dreams (in a Deep Blue Sky); Chasing a Butterfly; My Garden; Sugar Drops (for a Fairy); Only a Finest Breeze; I Never Had Sugar Dreams; Precious Love; Watching Caroline´s Dream; Treasure; Candy
