On Jeremy Jay’s Dream Diary [KLP212] the sway of the heart is in overdrive with the freedom of youth and bright horizons (especially at night); oh, and don’t forget love. These are the major themes of Dream Diary. Recorded with the powerful yet lithe trio of Jeremy, guitar and keyboards, Derek playing electric bass guitar, and Michael on drums, they kept the room alive at Stagg Street Studios in Los Angeles, Ca. with the majestic pop perfection that unfolds as Dream Diary draws you into its spell. Synth driven, and a bit moodier than his past work, this album will take you by the hand and walk with you towards a beautiful sunset, and then walk right past it.
“Slow Dance uses crisp garage-rock and frigid postpunk as a backdrop for [a] romanticized pop fantasy … It’s the most weirdly mesmerizing in a series of promising singles, EPs and full length-length releases [by Jeremy Jay].” Pitchfork
“Jeremy Jay has become one of the most oddly compelling pop songwriters of recent memory.” XLR8R
