It's been awhile since Argentinian power pop project Baby Scream released something new. Their latest two albums were a Best Of and an expanded edition of their self-titled album. The new single Haters Will Hate b/w I Don't Wanna Wake Up From This Dream serves as the forerunner for new full-length that is pencilled in for a January 2015 release.
Main man Juan Pablo Mazzola is big John Lennon fan and the subdued Haters Will Hate aims high with its lyrics painting a future that isn't particularly bright. Don't Wanna Wake Up From This Dream show a glimmer of hope, but it's content is pretty bleak as well. Nick Schinder takes care of the piano and strings and by downsizing to a duo Baby Scream has reinvented themselves as a soft-spoken and serious act. Recommended if you like Chris Bell and Robyn Hitchcock.
