Tribes of the City presents dreamy album

The indie “dream pop” band Tribes of the City is set to present its second album Jan. 16 during a concert in the Studentu Klubs in Rīga. The album is titled Recipe of the Golden Dream.

The band also plans a seven-city tour in Russia, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, according to a press release from Rīga-based Platforma Music.

Recipe of the Golden Dream is a double album with 15 tracks. “This album is like a collection of individual emotions—viewed through the prism of reality—from visions and scenes that come from memories,” the band says in the press release.

Band members include Mihails Sergejevs on keyboards, Andrejs Vasiļjevs on guitar, Juris Justs on bass, Ints Barkāns on drums, Sergejs Jaramisjans on guitar and Ksenija Sundejeva vocals.

The new album is a followup to For the Sleepy People, released in 2006. But it should be remembered that the band really has released three albums so far, the first being Running to the Sun in 2004 back when the ensemble was known as The Movies. (Speaking of movies, Sundejeva also appears in the Latvian feature film Amatieris, released in April 2008. The DVD version was supposed to hit stores in December.)
