Modern Meta Physic by Peel Dream Magazine on Slumberland Records

Peel Dream Magazine - Modern Meta Physic


  • £16.99

Modern Meta Physic is the debut album of Peel Dream Magazine, the nom de plume of New York City-based musician Joe Stevens. Stevens, a talented multi-instrumentalist, wrote, played, recorded, and mixed the album in his apartment in Brooklyn. 

Exhausted by what he thinks of as the manipulative aspects of contemporary pop music, Stevens harkens back to the early 1990s, when The Velvet Underground resurged as an inspiration to a new set of bands wielding synthesizers, off-set guitars, and a political bent. The Peel Dream experience is defined by a gentle, fuzzy psychedelia, largely indebted to London's one-time “Scene that Celebrates Itself." 

It’s hypnotic mod-ish lo-fi pop, recalling the best of early Stereolab, Lilys, and other shaggy haired kids with vintage fuzz pedals, slim trousers, and good record collections. Stevens conjures a distinctly 90's vision of the 60's. Not the actual 60's, mind you, but perhaps a 60's daydreamed about from the creature comforts of a suburban living room.
