Though sadly Bare Wires imploded in a disjointed run of dates at last year's SXSW, there remain a few bright spots in the story - namely that this final album survived the fray and that Matthew Melton has quickly picked up as Warm Soda in his previous band's wake. Idle Dreams runs through the many amplified stages that have marked the previous Bare Wires albums; exhaust-fueled heavy punkers, proto-glam stomp and tough chewed power pop. Over the past couple of years Bare Wires established themselves as a formidable force on record and on the road, devouring tour dates with a fervor that bordered on endless wanderlust. Melton's continued that tradition with Warm Soda and kicked up the softer side of his songwriting but this stands as one last chance to hear the fruits of one of the best West Coast cone shredders from the past few years. It’s a necessary addition to cap your collection, that's for sure.
