Cheap beats entertain me for a night, clever songwriting carries me for a few weeks, while a strong singular voice lingers a bit longer. Then there are certain songs and albums that I keep returning to over the years – Dadamah’s This is not a Dream LP has been sitting quietly and solidly in my collection since 1995 and every time I put it on it fully envelopes and amaze me.
Dadamah – a foursome consiting of Kim Pieters, Peter Stapleton, Roy Montgomery, and Janine Stagg – formed and disbanded within a few years in the early 90s in their hometown of Dunedin, New Zealand. They only ever made three live apperances and recorded just about a dozen tracks but their legacy of layered spacey drone sound lives on.
