Music Review: Tristen 'Dream Within A Dream' 7"

Nashville's Tristen (born Tristen Gaspadarek, but releases work under her first name only, like Lissie, or Lizzo), known to most as a member of Jenny Lewis' backing band, has been steadily making her own solo work over the last decade and has recently gained broader attention thanks to praise by NPR, Spin Magazine, The A.V. Club, Paste Magazine, and others; including for her collaboration with Lewis on the song 'Glass Jar' from Tristen's 2017 'Sneaker Waves' on the Modern Outsider label.

Her newest release, the 7" single Dream Within A Dream, on the Louisville label This Man Records, will be released on May 10th, with a record release show that night at Odeon.

The title track plays out like a cross section of Lydia Loveless and St. Vincent, with slightly more teeth than her previous offerings; as if Cherry Glazerr relocated from sunny California to the Nashville metropolitan area.

Dream Within A Dream is backed with Red Lava Flows; a reverb soaked dream pop waltz that is more related to her earlier work, as represented on her 2013 album C A V E S, albeit more steeped in sentiment; leaning closer to Angel Olsen than Sharon Van Etten, but absolutely worth picking up for anyone interested in the more glossy side of current pop. 

Tristen plays at Odeon on May 10th with Ted Tyro and Howell Dawdy. More info here.
