Dream Weapons present: BEFORE WE GO UNDER C90 by Matt Jencik

Matt Jencik is a musician based in Chicago. Jencik has been performing and recording since the early nineties in bands such as Hurl, Don Caballero, and more recently Slint, Papa M and Circuit Des Yeux. His most recent band Implodes has released two records on Kranky and in early 2017 he released his debut solo album Weird Times on Hands in the Dark Records. Jencik is also a 20+ year record store employee & he's been the head music buyer at Reckless Records for over a decade.

"Fuzzy frequencies are one of my favorite things and I was interested in showing how well they can work in different genres of music whether it be lo-fi noise rock, shoegaze, synthesizer music, African rock, folk or black metal. I obviously love all of these tracks, but a few are some of my favorite songs of all time."

Dream weapons present: RETURN TO TRAPPIST-1 C90

NASA just recently discovered a whole new solar system filled with atleast seven "earth-sized planets" closely orbiting a dwarf star named TRAPPIST-1. And its only a mere 39 light years away!

On this sci-fi mix Planet Earth is mostly reduced to a toxic waste dump - which is why a spaceship is on its way to search for water or/and possible life on planet TRAPPIST-1b, c, d, e, f, g or h (preferably dumb life, not intelligent). So what is the crew’s soundtrack gonna be like? Cosmic grooves full of space bleeps and swooshes that's occasionally interrupted by meteor showers, comets and unidentified flying objects - obviously.
