Holy shit! Dream Jefferson mentioned in The Independent

August 16, 2011

Dream Jefferson featured in The Independent’s hot playlist.

You know that moment as a kid when you first realize people – other than Mom and Terry (your step dad) – can actually see you when you pick your nose or awkwardly dress up your G.I. Joes with summer hats and paper dresses in the school parking lot?

The moment you realize you’re part of a bigger world-at-large and that you’re able to both engage and influence it?

That’s sort of how we feel right now.

Wait, you forgot the Cigarette Smoking Baby?

Never forget the CSB.

Dream Jefferson reviews in Cokemachineglow, A New Band A Day and Citizen Insane

August 6, 2011

Dream Jefferson are the real talk of the town these days with reviews in Cokemachineglow, A New Band A Day and Citizen Insane.

Well, it seems like Dream Jefferson are starting to get some of the recognition they so rightly deserve. Cokemachineglow gave Toronto’s dreamboats (see what I did there?) an 82% review, contrasting Punch Perm to shock-masters Odd Future.

Dream Jefferson are not so much a cerebral exercise, and also very far from stupid. That you require no justification for enjoyment of this album reflects its modern character and total lack of sensationalism.

A New Band A Day heaped similar praise on Dream Jeff, saying their posturing and bratty bluster would seem nonsensical in most other environs, but sitting as it does, in a rainbow-coloured nest of electro-lo-fi hip hop, it thrives and reaps its own rewards, over and over.”

And finally, Citizen Insane nails it, saying Dream Jefferson should be the soundtrack to your next dance party.

Who would’ve thought a hip-hop/electronic duo from Ottawa could deftly combine old skool rhymes, b-boy beats and Friday-night hipster danceability?

Please help us get these guys reviewed on Pitchfork!

We’ve got a big day planned for you tomorrow, everybody!

Make your way to Rancho Relaxo at 9PM for Turner’s Birthday Extravaganza featuring Karoshi, The Motherlode, Cessna, and of course, to finish the night off, DREAM JEFFERSON WILL BE PLAYING PUNCH PERM FOR ALL OF YOU FOLKS WHO SHOULD PROBABLY BE GETTING SOME SLEEP BECAUSE YOU MIGHT HAVE A JOB WHICH YOU NEED TO GET TO THE OTHER DAY OR NEED TO BE PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY IN ONE FORM OR FASHION!

Coming From Parts Unknown… Dream Jefferson “PUNCH PERM”!

July 22, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages… weighing in at 1 ton… hailing from PARTS UNKNOWN… Dream Jefferson’s PUNCH PERM is IN THE BUILDING!

Take a listen… download this… share with a friends. That’s right… a friends. Then you’re going to want to share with listens, take a this, and download a listen! See that? WORD JUMBLE. That’s all your brain is going to be able to process by the time you’re done listening to this.

Be sure to make your way over to The Burning Ear and check out the first impression of Punch Perm by our favourite blogger and part-time battleship, Brandon:

The rhymes and storytelling are quick, irreverent, and on point as they drop odd references to things like The X-Men (“The Danger Room”), The Royal Wedding (“Westminster Abbey”), and Final Fantasy and Beyonce in the same song (“Robo Kill Beneath Disco Club Layla”). I don’t know how Corboe and Owel got album art that is basically a mirror of what happens when you hear these jams. Nifty trick.

And don’t forget, Ottawa! Come out to Maverick’s tonight and LIVE THIS with KWES, Crush Buildings and DREAM JEFFERSON!

Dream Jefferson T-Shirts, CKCU Interview & 1 Day Until Punch Perm!

July 21, 2011

Alright, everybody!

We all need clothes, right? You can’t just walk around shirtless all day like a professional wrestler. Hell, even professional wrestlers wear shirts when they’re not working. What a better way to hide your insecurities than to drape yourself in a t-shirt of your favourite Canadian electro-indie-hip-hop group? That’s Dream Jefferson, btw (btw).

Yowza! That’s a spicy meatbulb t-shirt! You can grab yourself one at the official Punch Perm release party TOMORROW at Maverick’s! Best $20 you ever spend (aside from that $20 you dropped on eBay to get yourself a pair of WWF Wrestling Buddies… we’re not going to lie… that’s a pretty awesome find!)

The doors are open at 9, and the music starts at 10 with KWES, followed by Crush Buildings, and the night will be wrapped up with Dream Jefferson! $7!

ALSO OF NOTE: Be sure to tune in to CKCU today at 11:15 to catch Corboe speaking about Punch Perm on Whatever’s Cool With Me, and there will be an exclusive preview of one of the new tracks, Purple Hearts!
