    Riding a Fine Line Between Dream Pop and Shoegaze

    Travis Bretzer in one among a growing selection of intriguing artists from the independent New York label Mexican Summer, which is rapidly becoming one of my favorite labels from which to shop. His music rides a fine line and yet finds a delicate balance between dream pop and shoegaze that is utterly captivating. Once you put this album on to play, it's very easy to get lost in the soothing vibe as the music plays. It's also an album that grows on you the more you listen to it. Travis's guitar work reminds me a lot of Mexican Summer's veteran of weird pop, Connan Mockasin, but the stories he weaves in his songs are far less strange and more earthbound (no songs about anthropomorphic dolphins here). Listening to the album is akin to being passenger to a long summer car ride through a quiet field: there's a certain sense of tranquility and floatiness to the music. The stand-out tracks for me are "Idle By," "Promises" (one of my favorites), "Don't Forget," "Lady Red" (an excellent single)," and "Good Times."
