New Single & Video from Leslie Medford, “Leslie’s Dream” Out Today from Independent Project Records
NEW LESLIE MEDFORD DIGITAL TRACK AND VIDEO OUT TODAY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA (FRIDAY APRIL 28, 2023) – Independent Project Records (IPR) is set to release their first ever digital-only single which will be out on 28th April. Special occasions require special songs, and what you’re about to hear is a slice of moody, brooding psych with a motorik heart and a throbbing political conscience. “Leslie’s Dream” is a rare new recording from Leslie Medford, the maverick leader of 80s San Francisco psychedelic journeymen The Ophelias. According to David Fricke (Rolling Stone, MOJO), The Ophelias were “modernists steeped in the vintage, local ethos of a late set at the Fillmore Auditorium – a potent tab of futurist acid-pop…laced with post-punk menace”.
In 2022 Independent Project Records released a well-received retrospective titled Bare Bodkin, charting The Ophelias’ genre-defying journey (“a stunning summation of The Ophelias’ offbeat oeuvre”, said Shindig! Magazine awarding the album 5/5 stars). Almost 40 years later, Medford is still busy conjuring spacey image-rich reveries, so get ready for “Leslie’s Dream”! Check it out here.
If the USA was eligible for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest “Leslie’s Dream” would likely win the thing. Then again, in a perfect world Leslie Medford’s latest song wouldn’t be necessary like it is. We at Independent Project Records believe Medford hit the vein of the zeitgeist whilst asleep, and the track might just snowball onto summer dancefloors around the continent and beyond given the weather these days and this current atmosphere of impending chaos. Medford led The Ophelias (research them!) in the 1980s, and like that band Leslie still dreams big. Infectious and memorable, “Leslie’s Dream” aims to mobilize thought, booty-shaking, and an ecstatic, whooping, mosh pit of change.
