Seattle experimental musician called Samuel Melancon, who has recorded under his own name but also under SLATES, MOTOR and MEGABATS. Making harsh noise, drone, ambient and also techno music. Under SLATES has recorded three releases in CD format and one in double vinyl LP ("Taiga" 2014), but this double LP doesn't sound like electronic harsh noise but punk and post-hardcore music. Returning to this "Street of dreams" from 2009, I think the cover speaks itself: all kind of disasters but always with natural origins. Fire, is a perfect symbol to explain in only one word how it sound this album. A great and long track, 44 minutes which move from ambient noise wall (slow, deep) to HNW (fast and furious). Not to listen to everyday but a very good work no doubt in its genre.
