Jay Rosenstock – No Dream [Streaming]

In a surprise release, Jeff Rosenstock dropped his fourth full-length album NO DREAM today on Polyvinyl Records.
Also No Dream is available for free download via Quote Unquote Records, with all donations going to Food Not Bombs. NO DREAM comes at a time of unparalleled chaos and confusion, division and despair, the depths of which would have been impossible to predict when much of it was being written over the course of the last few years. And yet the record feels prescient, unexpectedly and uniquely suited for this moment.
This is a fun punk rocking album to kick off the summer (If there is a summer?).

About the album:
Rosenstock recorded NO DREAM with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Hard Girls, Joyce Manor) at Oakland’s Atomic Garden, and even took on mixing duties alongside Shirley for the first time. Opting to stay off the computer “even more than usual” and record to tape with outboard gear, the result is a lived-in sound that gives each song its own individual voice and organic energy.
“It was feeling like a very personal record for me,” says Rosenstock.
“A lot of it was stemming from the anxiety I was feeling from the last two years, this existential crisis of wondering who I am.”
Rosenstock has found himself in a surprising position. As he puts it simply: “I didn’t expect to be doing well, in my life, ever.”
