Neva Dinova: You May Already Be Dreaming

Neva Dinova
You May Already Be Dreaming
Saddle Creek Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Neva Dinova is another Omaha artist that has had their day in the spotlight sharing credits with Bright Eyes on the EP One Jug Of Wine, Two Vessels [2004], that highlights the band a little more as they release their third long player You May Already Be Dreaming. Their music is clean and the tempo is slow, which gives the listener plenty of time to soak in the music lyrically and sonically. You May Already Be Dreaming may not be the bands strongest effort to date but it also is no throwaway with its atmospheric sweeping guitars, clever wordplay and Jake Bellows driving voice.

Key Track: "Clouds"

Band With Similar Fire: Pedro The Lion
