Live Video: Dean Wareham

photo by Charina Pitzel (view set)

If Dean Wareham‘s own name isn’t familiar, his previous projects most likely are. Galaxie 500 and Luna may never have quite reached the commercial success to match their critical acclaim, but both bands inspired a generation to follow of dream-pop wanderers and romantic rock dreamers. And both were favorites among KCMU and KEXP DJs and listeners alike. Fortunately, Dean Wareham kept busy after Luna’s demise, focusing on soundtracks and collaborative work with former Luna bassist, and his wife, Britta Philips, and he returns now with his self-titled “solo debut”, which forgoes none of the dreamy psych-pop, chiming guitars, atmospheric keyboards and gentle vocals that he’s always been known for. Accompanied by Philips, in addition to guitarist/bassist Raymond Richards and drummer Roger Brogan, Dean Wareham stopped by KEXP recently to draw us back into his own world and it couldn’t be dreamier.
