Tamaryn - 'Dream Truancy' Exclusive Noisey Mix!

Truancy *from* dreams? Truancy *into* dreams? Whatever it is, this mix is dangerously evocative.
October 4, 2012, 5:30pm

Dream truancy. Truancy from dreams? Truancy into dreams? A dream truancy fantasy? Whatever it is, this exclusive Tamaryn mix is dangerously evocative. It’s heavy like too much brandy in your wine, like a just bearable but too hot, steamy bath—when it's so tempting to just give in and sink deep down into it, but maybe after a little while, the water will get icy, cold and then you’ll be locked into this ephemeral, tripped out life forever. Actually, it’s more like doing pirouettes around the edge of a k-hole when you’ve ditched high school and run off with the cutest boy in class to party 'til dawn in the 80s. Yep, that’s it. Listen to it with eyes closed and images of Christian Slater in Pump Up The Volume dancing around in your little blissed-out minds.
