Grave Pleasure: Dreamcrash
Beastmilk’s new incarnation dance in the ruins
In their previous incarnation as Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures released Climax – one of the finest, danceably catchy, anthemic debut albums of the last decade.
It doesn’t take very long into a listen of Dreamcrash to realise this is a different beast. For one, Kurt Ballou’s lush, abrasive production has been replaced by a more stripped-down, punkier sound that adds to the frosty edge, but robs it of initial impact. More importantly, the hedonistic atmosphere has changed.
