JRG – ‘The Dreamers’
Julien Rossow Greenberg is one half of Philadelphia indie psyche pop band, Arches. But when he makes music by himself, his initials more than suffice. The Dreamers’ EP is the second release from Julien’s solo project. From what I can tell, Julian isn’t one to elaborate. There isn’t much to read about either release, other than that it was recorded in late 2011/early 2012. And in an ideal world the music would speak for itself. And with the sound he’s able to get, with those reverberating guitars, syncopated drum machines, and lofty vocals, I think it does stand to say something of it’s own.
JRG’s debut You’re With Me was an EP full of humid and familiar sounds. A summer soundtrack solid enough to take you back to those days when the “American Dream” was more than enough to get you out of bed in the morning. The Dreamers’ EP is a little more abstract, as indicated by the title. An EP for the dreamer, sounds and words they can own. That apostrophe on the other side of that s makes all the difference.
