Dreamcrusher

Referring to their work as "Nihilist Queer Revolt Musik," Dreamcrusher is a gender non-binary straight-edge vegan from Wichita, Kansas named Luwayne Glass. Their impossibly harsh, distorted music owes as much to power electronics as to industrial, rave, goth, and shoegaze. While associated with the experimental noise scene, Glass has trouble relating to many of its more alienating tendencies. Undeniably challenging and intense, Dreamcrusher's music is a bit more accessible due to the inclusion of blown-out melodies, pulverizing beats, and sometimes bleary vocals. Glass originally began uploading music to MySpace during the 2000s, including remixes of tracks by artists ranging from Crystal Castles to Erykah Badu. After releasing a few EPs of original material, Glass began performing live shows in 2012. Soon after, their unique, uncompromising music and confrontational performances began attracting attention from various corners of the underground music world. Cassette releases quickly appeared on labels like This Ain't Heaven Recording Concern and Dionysian Tapes. In 2014, Chicago-based Hausu Mountain released Dreamcrusher's Suicide Deluxe (previously self-released digitally in 2013) to much acclaim. Glass raised money to tour across the country, and relocated to Brooklyn in 2015. By the end of the year, Dreamcrusher signed to Fire Talk, which released Hackers All of Them Hackers. In March of 2016, the label reissued nearly a dozen items from Dreamcrusher's back catalog in addition to releasing a newly recorded EP titled Quid Pro Quo. ~ Paul Simpson
