NEW LIFE AFTER DOWNSIZING: It’s been two years since Dream The Electric Sleep released its debut album, “Lost and Gone Forever,” for free, out of nowhere, to critical acclaim. The Lexington-based progressive rock band’s 14-song concept record about the life of an eastern Kentucky coal mining family would not be easy to duplicate. After downsizing into a three-piece a few months ago, the guys in DTES were challenged with recreating live, the richly layered sound (think Pink Floyd meets Muse) found on the debut record. See what they worked out when Dream The Electric Sleep performs today, March 22, at The V Club in Huntington with John Lancaster and Horseburner, and read more about the band on our Life page.
