I love how The Vapor Caves can simultaneously sound ahead of the pack and rooted in the past with what seems like relative ease. For Dreams, the duo tapped guitarist Jackie Venson to add a little spice to their synth-based funk for a song that sounds like it belongs on a mixtape between Sheena Easton and Sheila E. I don’t know how BoomBaptist and Yadira Brown continue to ride this wave of beautiful sonic creation, but it doesn’t look like it will crest at any point in the near future, even with the industry at large in a strange ebb. Long story short, check out this track, download it, stream it, request it from your favorite radio or TV show, hack into an HEB public intercom and play it loud, or just throw it on repeat and take a drive. In all seriousness, share this one around, follow The Vapor Caves on your favorite social media hangout, and always support your local mad geniuses.
Also, shout out to René Cárdenas for the dope cover design.
