Boomkat Product Review:
A couple of months on from the release of the ace Citay Remixes LP and the band return with a brand new album. Dream Get Together is Citay's third album, and their second for Dead Oceans (having debuted for Important). It's an album that goes further than anything they've previously done, and sounds greatly evolved from this group's beginnings as a studio project between Ezra Feinberg and Tim Green (of The Fucking Champs). The new record channels the kind of creative excesses you'd seldom hear outside '70s rock, seeking help from notable contributors such as Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards and Josh Robinow of Howlin' Rain. Much of the material relishes the opportunity for a prolonged solo, and this is never truer than on 'Fortunate Sun', which stands out in the latter part of the album's sequence, matching psychedelic, choral vocals with a harmonised guitar solo to shame anything Thin Lizzy or Brian May committed to tape. Well, not exactly, but you get the idea.
