The American Dollar Set To Release “A Memory Stream” 8/19

Ready to break out of two album’s worth of being loved by fans on Last FM, MySpace, and other facets of the Internet, New York City stationed duo The American Dollar release A Memory Stream this July. John and Rich, the duo that comprise this talented collaboration, have been making music together for seven years, and what has come out of their sonic chemistry is a project that plays on all of their needs and wants in expressing an artistic sense of emotion and bold statement.

The imagery is heavy, and were this a film score, it would be the one for human nature. The song-to-song transitions and sweeping crescendos are often that grab listeners by the heartstrings to draw them in towards complete bliss – the album begins with the two part tracks “The Slow Wait,” and its effects are just that. Riddled with sadness and joy, there are points of light that poke through very dark undertones as you pass from tracks 1 through 11. With guitar stylings comparable to Bloc Party, the organ influence of Pink Floyd carries the album across. “The Slow Wait Part 2” is breath-taking, but like the debut albums from Interpol or Sigur Rós, the songs create a cohesion when heard from front to back. Long drives, late nights, and many other moments that are affected by the music that accompanies them, The American Dollar is a necessity to one’s personal soundtrack.
