  • One of my favourite tracks on the album, agree totally about the Miles/Tim Buckley comments. The keyboard coda is just perfect, one of my favourite moments in music. It's sampled in something I'm sure, can't remember what though. Something by Amon Tobin maybe?
  • Damn. So glad to happen upon this.
  • Dark dreams...Dreams By The Sea is one of the best tracks on Solid Air. Fits in well with the sounds of the early 70's, Miles Davis & Tim Buckley dug the same vein of disturbed funky, jazzy electric musical vibes.
  • what a freaky brain show .... really he had this home made box in his rack ...yeah man like a guitar tardis yeah valve analogue and hand built.... honest babe well it was the sixties. fosooth!
  • top ten, selten ein Mann welcher so hingebungsvoll singt
  • Nick McCabe, you're awesome. :D
  • This artist is a great discovery! WOW!!!
  • The way it fits with the album reminds me of Jeff Buckley's "So Real" ... This is a little better, though. :)
  • Funky!
  • Excellent tune
