Too Many Dreams Not Enough Schemes is a diverse yet cohesive collection of songs that show off Sabrehart’s love of breakbeats, fat, analogue synths and indie guitars. Highlights include SpecialCake, which sounds like The Velvet Underground and Nico remixed by J Dilla and features the icy-cool vocals of La Petit Sonja. Illusions is driven by pulsing bassline alternating between squelchy synth and bass guitar, sampled drums reminiscent of DJ Shadow, weird stretched out brass and Rhys Braddock’s customary smart lyrics. While on Floating, Ema Brabcova’s heavenly tones levitate over skittering percussion and intriguing chords.
The are no shortage of indie-electronic, pop gems on this album and any of the vocal tracks could be potential singles but there are also a few darker, more experimental flavours to be savoured too. Album closer Piano Scratch starts as a delicate blend of glitching pianos and double bass which builds up to a heaving frenzy of synths, beats and samples, a perfect conclusion to a record that will transport you to a futuristic yet soothingly familiar parallel universe.

The album is a thrilling blend of Pop, Electronic, Punk and Hiphop that ruthlessly plunders 20th century pop-culture but never sounds anything less than truly fresh.
