This new video for “Dream about me” comes from Brooklyn-based band The Depreciation Guild. This is total 80’s revival.Β  A Synth pop love child of guitar-led Shoegaze and Nintendo. Band member Kurt Feldman,drummer from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart along with brothers Christoph and Anton Hochheim mix a highly nostalgic blend of melody driven spacey pop with a bass, percussion, and synth sound derived entirely from a Nintendo Famicon sound chip that gives their songs a very simplistic, MIDI like Super Nintendo feel. Added to this textured mix are Feldmans soaring vocals which remind me a little of My Bloody Valentine. You can download their debut album, In Her Gentle Jaws for free by clicking on the yellow strip on their web site.

    merely to clear up some misinformation…the band is comprised of kurt on guitar and vocals and brothers christoph and anton on guitar and drums, respectively…former member, akira, amicably left the band to pursue further studies, but remains a good friend of kurt
