I Had A Dream You Were Mine - Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam

42.99

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam are best known from their work in The Walkmen and Vampire Weekend respectively.

'I Had A Dream That You Were Mine' is an album of songs Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam wrote and recorded together between July 2014 and February 2016. In the spirit of collaborative albums, not unlike those of David Byrne and Brian Eno, each musician's individuality remains in tact, while in fact, on this record, both Hamilton's identity as a singer and Rostam's as a producer seem to reach new heights.

From the doo-wop of 'When the Truth is...' to the country pedal steel of 'The Morning Stars'; from the piano and organ alchemy of the Band in 'A 1000 Times', to the Leonard Cohen-esque Spanish triplets of 'In A Black Out'; the album harnesses the exploding musical styles of midcentury America—which, when melded with the warbled 1980's analogue synthesizers of 'You Ain't That Young Kid', the ultramodern sub bass of 'Sick As A Dog', the intimate falsetto of 1959, and the raucous bar-room chorus of 'Rough Going'—sparks an entirely unexpected and innovative style.

This will be the first time the album is available on vinyl (it was released digitally in 2016).
