Remember Dreamscape? No? Well, Kranky does, and they're releasing a retrospective collection on August 20

Dreamscape didn’t record much, and they didn’t last long. In 1990, the Bristol trio released a single, and in 1992, they released an EP. In 1993, they broke up. Guitarist Scott Purnell and bassist Jamie Gingell formed a similarly shoegaze-y project called Secret Shine. Vocalist Rebecca Rawlings disappeared.

In spite of their short existence and sparse discography, Dreamscape haven’t been forgotten. According to FACT and Exclaim!, Kranky plans to issue a new Dreamscape collection called La-Di-Da Recordings, which will feature a handful of lost tracks. The first four songs come from Greater Than God, an unreleased 1993 EP, and the last song is a demo — the only material left from a recording session that occurred right before the band broke up. The rest comes from the 1992 EP, Cradle.

La-Di-Da Recordings will be available August 20, and you can stream “Separate Sense” below via Kranky’s SoundCloud:
