HTRK demos are the best! I’m enjoying this this as much as “Rhinestones” and I didn’t think that was possible. “Lilac” was an amazing collection of demos and experiments as well. Fucking blown away with this collection. Jonnine and Nigel never disappoint.

Death Is a Dream offers an intriguing glimpse behind the veil of HTRK’s celebrated 2021 album, Rhinestones, by collecting 10 demos, vignettes, and sketches from the album’s genesis. Hearing the songs in a starker state illuminates just how striking and durable these arrangements are – like lost highway jukebox standards, the melodies radiate spectral heartbreak in nearly any key or tempo. Many of these versions come tethered to a percussive pulse, giving them even more of a loping, lonesome feel, softly swaying in a private wilderness.
