About this album

Love’s Recurring Dream will be released in February 2009 on Italic Recordings. The album is a song cycle with recurring harmonic and rhythmic themes. Lyrically, Love’s Recurring Dream is a narrative chronicling the phases of a romance, which symbolically runs over the course of a year. In the twelve songs, singer Rob Taylor follows the progress of the seasons from spring, summer and autumn to winter, with the implicit promise that a new spring will follow. For the recording, a group of musicians was assembled in San Francisco for improvisational sessions that make up the body of the album. Precise editing by producer Alex Paulick brings coherence to these spontaneous takes, with performances ebbing and flowing between rather loose and artificially tight. Under the influence of co-producer Bacchus Marteau, female backing vocals, harpsichords and vibraphones were added to the fold. Pristine mixes by Marcus Schmickler (Pluramon) ensure that this ambitious contrast of sounds remains delicately balanced. Min Stiller’s cover sculpture mirrors the cyclical nature of Love’s Recurring Dream, evoking the paradoxical tension that holds lovers together, yet threatens to unravel them. In its entirety, Love’s Recurring Dream is a modern concept album featuring classic song writing and bold production, combined to create profound popular music.

Prior to the release of Love’s Recurring Dream, Coloma have been rehearsing a six-piece band lineup for an initial string of live dates in 2009.
