Wow, latest record by True Sleeper is soooo, soooo good. Truly ecstatic. From the first till the last track.
Marco Barzetti, Rome, Italy, is at his top notch in song writing here. And he cherished this little baby with playing (almost) every instrument, mixing and mastering, - what a magistral piece of work. His previous release, Life Happened, 2019, was not this mature and elegantly calculated. Chapeau.
Every single detail counts here. With Loving You in Parallel Dimensions he finally embraced full experimentation with synths, drum loops and continuous vocals interplay, and his guitar is able to fuse with all that, riding the groovy vibe he wisely feeds.
Opening track Dream Travellers  flows in a full mellow crescendo of melancholia, fully inspired by an in trance state, like, you must listen to this track with headphones, laying on your bed, and you'll see that. Sleep rider is no less. So does How You Feel. Like a matching point between Depeche Mode, Bjork, The Cure, and Tame Impala knotty groove going dreampop. How You Feel is gigantic, Barzetti here has the confidence of speaking through poignant poetry, nurtured with a swell into the imaginary of a perfect beat and bassline marriage, growing and growing into a living memory. And its liason with final piece If Our Dreams Were Connected is gorgeous. With no rush, he plays with magnificent fireworks.
The Surface and Seven Lives is porn for guitar bass lovers. A sip of 70s psychedelia, and Barzetti puts on a multi carpet of vocals slow dancing into a natural swimming pool of unknown depth. (Reality Check) is an ambient monster, piano driven. 
Entities is the pop single here, with the catchy refrain which may do his fortune.
This is a special record, so I bought it. Hopefully to have this on vinyl someday soon.
