IT WAS A GOOD DREAM is a Boston-based instrumental/post-rock band which began in early 2018. The project began as a compositional exercise for longtime friends and collaborators Chris Anthony and Alex Glover, and quickly grew into something larger than either anticipated.
Recorded in a centuries-old Masonic Temple-turned recording studio in Northeastern Massachusetts, the duo’s debut album, "Help Me to Recollect" is saturated with a brightly haunted atmosphere. The historical live room graciously left its fingerprints all over the recordings - gorgeously architected 50-foot tall ceilings end where effect pedals begin. Drums shake unreachable shelves and cymbals crash in their wake, bringing to life the resident dust in long-forgotten hallways. Unplanned creaks and rattles invite the listener to explore each deeply layered sound expertly captured by producer James Bridges (Caspian, American Echoes, Mike Gordon).
"Help Me to Recollect" is available now on all streaming platforms, with a limited edition clear splatter vinyl available via Dunk!Records, and very limited green marble vinyl available from the band.
