Songs for Dreaming

God knows, there are hundreds of songs that could fill this niche, but here's a sampling of my favorite sleepy-time tunes. Here's to hibernation, friends.

The Appleseed Cast - View of a Burning City
Dream: Mildly apocalyptic, with submarines.
Buy it!

Iron and Wine - The Trapeze Swinger
Dream: Yellowed bibles, knowing glances, salad.
Buy it!

Bilal - Soul Sista
Dream: Smoky.
Buy it!

Crooked Fingers - There's a Blue Light
Dream: Eric Bachmann in my bedroom. The mix is so vocal. Subconscious went literal.
Buy it!

Mishima USA - Up the Branch
Dream: Wedding reception, slo-mo fistfight.
Ask for it!

Red House Painters - Have You Forgotten?
Dream: Casey Kasem's radio show, AFN radio, sweatpants.
Buy it!

Jack Frost - Providence
Dream: Kilbey, McLennan, me: two chord jam, sculpture park in Canberra.
Buy it!

Royksopp - Sparks
Dream: Traffic, schlieren, coffee and peanuts.
Buy it!

Rebecca Gates - I Received a Levitation
Dream: Snowfall, ghost with cat.
Buy it!

Yo La Tengo - Don't Have to be so Sad
Dream: A little soft shoe with my elementary school principal, high and low fives.
Buy it!

Mogwai - Burn Girl Prom Queen
Dream: Utter, bloody tragedy, hope for renewal, sulfur smell.
Buy it!

    "have you forgotten" is beautiful - i had never actually heard the RHP before - sounds a bit like The Samples
