I was sent an unfinished version of Dose Your Dreams, so that I might contribute string parts. I couldn't stop listening to the rough mixes I received. A friend asked me how the records was. I replied, "my God, Fucked Up have made their Screamadelica." And psych-rock-groove it is. The drums mixed wide, propensity for drones, for delay pedal, for repetition, groove. The politics and aesthetics of hardcore married to an "open format" approach to genre. Elements of doo-wop, krautrock, groove, digital hardcore. "None Of Your Business Man" opens the album in familiar-enough territory, a sax-assisted exit from an office space. But things get psychedelic very quickly. By the time the title track arrives, Mike Haliechuk is whispering, wah pedals are in full effect, and we're wearing oversized t-shirts and pinwheeling. "Accelerate", the lyrical centre-piece of the album, storms in like Boredoms on a bullet train and dissolves into a digital nightmare. The album closer, "Joy Stops Time", finds Fucked Up at their most D sseldorfian, nearly-eight minutes of blissful motorik. Dose Your Dreams - meaning: treat your dreams as you would a dream, allow yourself to be lost within them, allow them to open your heart and your mind, enjoy them as you would a drug. Reach out for my hand and pull me close. Owen Pallett
