ALBUM STREAM: Dead Gaze - Brain Holiday - 

Brain Holiday is the debut album proper from Dead Gaze, following on from the acclaimed self-titled compilation released by FatCat imprint Palmist in March. Brain Holiday is a confident and ambitious album, which places Cole Furlow's songwriting ability front and center; the move from recording in his bedroom to the famous Sweet Tea studio in Oxford, Mississippi allowing a talented composer of pop songs to emerge from the fuzz that characterized his earlier recordings.The time at Sweet Tea, which has played host to bands such as Animal Collective, Modest Mouse, The Walkmen, and Elvis Costello, came about by chance when a friend of Cole's who worked at the studio was offered 11 days of free studio time and immediately thought of Dead Gaze. As Furlow explains, the studio is a "huge million dollar studio with an amazing old Neve console," and he was excited at the opportunity recording at such a place presented to him; "I wanted everything to kinda be perfect. In my head I was thinking there is no way in the world I will touch another studio like this ever again, so fuck it - let's make an enormous pop record."
