Reverie Sound Revue are a unique case in the indie scene. The band from Calgary (Canada…what else?) released an EP back in 2003 which quickly became very popular on the radio and the alternative scene. However, instead of moving forward, the band quickly decided to call it a day in 2004. Lead singer Lisa Lobsinger continued singing as the female voice of Broken Social Scene, while the rest of the band members endured their own musical journeys. Fortunately for all of us, they decided to get back together and just released (June 23rd) their self-titled debut.
Their debut continues exactly where their EP abruptly stopped. Catchy tunes, melodic pop and endless reverb embraced by Lisa’s haunting voice. The closest match to their sound is probably Stereolab at their best (although the comparison may be too much for Reverie). The album sounds like a fresh explosion of melodies that makes you want to foolishly sing along. Each listen to the album is a journey that you just want to take again and again. Finally…Canada came to the rescue again!
