Alpenglow - "Dreaming Too Much" (video) (premiere)

The Brooklyn band bring out their dreamy side on their new track.

Brooklyn band Alpenglow will be releasing their debut album Callisto soon, but in the meantime they've put out a charming live performance of the dreamy, spacey new track "Dreaming Too Much", recorded at their space in Red Hook.

"We wrote this song to transport people into space and back before they realize they've gone away," the band says. "The lyrics describe a relationship during a jobless summer. Each morning began with one partner going dutifully to work and the other staying behind to let his unconscious wander.Upon awaking and finding nowhere to be but an 8'x10' music studio, the sleeper would continue his dreamy exploration in the confines of a very small box. Just like the limited space in which the song was created and the unlimited capacity of the imagination, "Dreaming Too Much" sticks to a rigid structure while covering some serious cosmic territory."

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
