Mapother IV – Barlow (Is Dreaming Of You Somewhere)


Look up Mapother IV and you’ll likely get back more references to his teethness than of the band of the same name. The reason, well Mapother IV are not one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, they are just a psychedelic sonic manifestation about to release a trio of records this year. Signed to Ghost of Pasha’s 2lofi4U record label they should make friends wherever Velvet Underground and Brian Jonestown Massacre’s groovy fans hang out. ‘Barlow (Is Dreaming Of You Somewhere)’ I’m reliably informed is not about a permed bespeckled soap monster. Can you even imagine her in good enough form to ‘dance round the corner like the belle of the avenue’? Nah, didn’t think so. The song is of a jolly disposition with its head firmly fixed on a sound that first emerged about 40 years ago. Out of time, periodically out of tune but boy is it good for the mind, body and spirit.
