marksdad17 This is an amazing record. I first heard it on WFMU on Jeffrey Davison's Shrunken Planet show. Captivated on first listen, and then when I read about Summer's story and how it affected Michael, I was further amazed. As a father who lost a son a bit more than a year ago, I know all-too-well the hurt and pain the accompanies the loss of someone you love. To channel that into some of the best music I've heard in the last year is truly a testament to Michael and Bipolar Explorer. Favorite track: From The First.

REVIEWS:

"Epic and affecting." - Surface Noise

"Unforgettable and essential. This is a major record." -Indiemusic (France)

"Celestial & spell-bounding compositions astounding us with beauty. Brilliant, luminous & cathartic. Puts shoegaze back into a state of grace." -Les Oreilles Curieuses



“One year ago, Bipolar Explorer’s record “Dream Together” moved us to tears and sounded like a musical farewell, as well as a last goodbye, but also, an unstoppable wish not to let absence become the most oppressive feeling in (composer/band co-founder, Michael Serafin-Wells’) life. Remembrances matter, as they always do with Bipolar Explorer. And through “Sometimes in Dreams” (Slugg Records) the project reaches an upper level into emotion and confidence, transfiguring the everlasting link between two inseparable soulmates and creators. In this new work, Summer and Michael chart a course that follows an inspired and enlightening way of composing - illuminating nostalgia as a powerful, precious and human strength - to offer us so many fascinating and sincere songs, all destined to be unforgettable and essential to our own lives. Have no doubt, this is a major record.

The dearest human beings are the ones we cherish the chance to meet and talk to when we most feel the urge to do so, spend hours writing one another and focusing on every word in reply. Michael suffered, but survived. Bipolar Explorer is a perfect reflection of this humanity; a honest, pure and helpful presence. A guileless and urgent art of melodies, tunes and vocals thread their way and lead us lovingly through “Sometimes in Dreams” and, in the depths of the record, Summer, his muse, his eternal love, talks to him and us as she never did before. But Summer never looks or sounds like a ghost: she stands right in front of us, holding her lover’s hand as they both look at us, smiling. She then lays her eyes on him, sings with him, creates and changes into a remarkable source of inspiration for their new double-LP; an eternal piece of work, divided into different chapters but as homogenous as welcoming us to explore BPX’s parallel universes and lands.

Summer is always here, close to Michael and us. Her voice resonates through the first tunes of the record, and will shine more and more as we travel into a wonderful and moving musical world. Never with even a thought to erase her presence, Michael creates an intense but devoted melodic canvas during two hours that are flowing nearly too fast for us, as we all feel comfortable and at peace with what we are listening and enjoying. A complete immersion explodes in our souls: distortion on “Letter to the Darkest Star” and astonishing natural movements on “Ocean” invite us to swim in clear and warm waters. ‘Sometimes in Dreams’ is an album about life, its difficulties but, most of all, all that makes us go forward, whatever may happen : “Phantom Limb” and “Out” stare at the vaporous veils of desire and the constant need to be with our beloved ones, as “Necessary Weight” changes pain into the origin of redemption and the acceptance of our mourning.

On the second part of the record, “Thousand Thousand Summer” is probably the most passionate track; a vocal obsession changing into a cathartic hypnosis, then leading to the overwhelming song “The Choral Text Passage (Summerlove)” which breaks our mental barriers as well as Michael’s when he went through his oppressive loss. “Sometimes in Dreams” is a staging of the union of souls, troubles and inspirations; a hidden book, lost in the multiple bookshelves of an imaginary bookstore, but the only one we can find in a glimpse of an eye, as it is shining and calling us.

The final words of “Lost Life” are the most perfect way to end up talking about “Sometimes in Dreams”; so, time to let Bipolar Explorer express an ultimate motivation to think, feel and live. Summer and Michael’s tenderness, confidence and friendship are spiritually and melodically intense, and we can’t thank them enough for what they give us, year after year.

Perfect ending: “In this moment she appeared to him. In this waking hour he saw and could see. Overcome with emotion he understood at last. She beckoned and he returned to her joyfully, as she said, simply... now!” -Raphael Duprez, Associate Editor, Indiemusic (France) - 2 January 2018


ABOUT THIS ALBUM:

NYC shoegaze trio follow up their acclaimed sixth album, DREAM TOGETHER - “magical & majestic, an ultimate-tour-de-force” (Indiemusic - France) - with this groundbreaking new double-album. A gapless flow of dreampop and post-rock underscored narrative across two discs. “Beautiful, great drifty pop filled with sadness and wonder” (Irene Trudel, WFMU).

28 tracks in all, SOMETIMES IN DREAMS is conceived as a live arts installation work for performance in collaboration with a visual artist. Featuring band co-founders Summer Serafin on vocals and spoken word, Michael Serafin-Wells on vocals, guitars, bass, percussion, tape loops and spoken and band friend Kim Donovan on additional spoken word/narration, this album, the group's seventh, revisits and re-imagines the songs from their 2012 release OF LOVE AND LOSS, weaving them seamlessly together with fourteen new compositions underscoring its newly penned poetic narrative as in live performance of the work. "Like a late night post-rock radio transmission drifting across the airwaves as we lay half asleep in bed" (Duly Noted - Montreal)

The limited edition CD comes with a beautiful 30 page booklet, conceived by Michael, in the style of a Victorian book of verses, with vintage black and white photos and the album's narrative, composed by Michael and voiced on the album by himself and Kim. The breathtaking cover image that wraps around the entire eco-wallet including the spine, is a photo - "A Summer Tale" - courtesy of celebrated French photographer and artist Colette Saint Yves.

Recorded live, noisily and in a hurry at The Shrine - NYC. Mixed and produced by Bipolar Explorer. Mastered by Scott Craggs, Old Colony - Boston.

ABOUT THE BAND:

Their sixth album, DREAM TOGETHER praised as “Magical and majestic - an ultimate tour-de-force” by France’s Indiemusic; their double-album, OF LOVE AND LOSS (2013) - "The most significantly stirring and addictive musical accomplishment we've come across in some time. Taut, emotional, urgent and altogether haunting” - and its follow-up, ANGELS (2015) - “Electrifying, what music fueled by raw love and emotions sounds like” - each a Critics Pick for Best Albums of the Year by Ground Control Magazine, Bipolar Explorer are an NYC-based dreampop, post-rock group founded by Summer Serafin (vocals) and former Uncle frontman Michael Serafin-Wells (lead guitar & vocals, bass, percussion, tape loops, spoken word), notable for intimate, electric live performances, unimpeachable songwriting, uncompromising DIY ethos and their playing without drums.

Featured on the legendary Irene Trudel's show on WFMU ("America's best radio station" - Rolling Stone) who calls their sound "beautiful, great drifty pop, full of sadness and wonder", the band’s newest record, a double-album, SOMETIMES IN DREAMS, is released on Slugg Records New Years Day 2018.

Recorded, mixed and produced by the band at The Shrine in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, SOMETIMES IN DREAMS is the group’s seventh album overall and their third in just the span of a eighteen months.

In June 2016, the group released ELECTRIC HYMNAL, a sixteen track collection of devotional songs and spoken word (both secular and sacred) - a meditation and sonic prayer for their fallen bandmate, Michael's true love and partner, Summer Serafin - in a limited edition one-time pressing on CD only (no digital), offering it free of charge, as a gift of faith.

Again, praised by Ground Control: "...Get ready to be swept up and away by a prayerful reverie of melodies. Listening, I began to feel like I was flying. Don’t forget that Bipolar Explorer is a post-rock band. Low growling vocals, gnarly grinding tempos, rhythmic looping strands that escape and rise above the weight of this world, where angels and the living mingle…"

The interweaving of spoken word into the band’s work was explained by Serafin-Wells recently in conversation with USC filmmaker, Alexandra Dennis-Renner, who is making a documentary, "Sonic Prayer", about the band.

Having begun work on a live performance art adaptation of their double-album, OF LOVE AND LOSS - first presented as a "concert performance" in Brooklyn in October 2015, the project continued to grow with 14 new compositions and narrative underscored and seamless linking the work in a gapless and continual flow over two discs, becoming this very album. About the project, Serafin-Wells says,“the idea of a female voice, a spoken word narrator, came to mind. To tell the story in tandem with the band, supported by film projections. And once I wrote the narrative voice for the live Of Love, that just started to seem a natural thing, making its way into ELECTRIC HYMNAL and DREAM TOGETHER. Ya know? In that way that things sort of cross-pollinate through multiple projects. We were listening a lot to Laurie Anderson’s “Heart of A Dog” at the time and we kinda thought… yeah.”

In artistic collaboration with several visual artist friends of the band, all three albums - “Electric Hymnal”, "Dream Together" and “Sometimes in Dreams” are conceived for performance as live installation pieces, in intimate, non-traditional settings. Immersive and multi-media, this direction might well be seen as a natural outgrowth of the band’s perennial choice of performance setting - art galleries - and other non-traditional venues.

Forging an unique sound - described variously as shoegaze, dreampop, slowcore, post-rock and minimalist indie - well serves the new songs Serafin-Wells began writing in the aftermath of the tragic loss of the group's female vocalist, Michael's love and partner, Summer Serafin, who passed away after a tragic accident in 2011. She was just 31. At work at the time on a new record, the group eventually returned to those recordings, adding them to a handful of newly written songs post-tragedy and re-conceiving the album as both a testament and tribute to Ms. Serafin – muse, collaborator and True Love - yielding a double-album, Of Love and Loss, released to great acclaim in October 2012.

As Michael told Indiemusic’s Raphael Duprez in a feature about the band (February 2017): “All of this is entirely for her. I often say that our music, each album, is of, for and about her. It’s my way of telling people about her and talking to her myself. That’s the “for’ and “about” parts of the equation. And Summer remains an integral part of the band - not only as its inspiration but, because I have lots of her isolated vocals from other recording sessions - as her voice, both spoken and singing, graces each record. I’ll write songs and fly in her voice. Summer isn’t the main reason BPX goes on, she’s the only reason. She is the reason. And I think I can trust that I’m doing things for the right reason if I always know the reason for it is her. Not out of any ambition other than to honor and conjure her. She’s my conscience..."

Bipolar Explorer's releases include “Sometimes in Dreams” (2018), “Dream Together" (2017), "Electric Hymnal" (2016), "Angels" (2015), their holiday album - "BPXmas" (2014), "Of Love and Loss" (2012), the digital-only singles "Watchers and Holy Ones" (2017), "We'll All Go Together" (2016) and "Downtown Train" (2015) and their earlier (pre-Summer) debut "Go Negative".

Track Name: You Are Loved (Summer's Theme)
Don’t feel lonely
I’m right here.
Don’t cry
Nothing is wasted.
Pack the good memories And leave the rest. Travel light
It suits you.
You are not damaged
I can tell
By the way you love me. We’re all of us
Covered in scars

And it doesn’t stop us from living.
There’s nothing wrong with you.
Like everyone,
You need to be loved.
And you are...

Disconsolate, alone, he returned to the small apartment that had been their home. Gently, reverently, he caressed her things - snapshots, one of her famous hot water bottles, the one with Marilyn Monroe on the front, her clothing, letters. He caressed them like relics, like treasure, and quietly slumped to the floor, still clutching a favorite blouse of hers, that he too loved. Hugging her things close, in his grief, he hoped somehow to wring her presence into being.
Track Name: Letter to the Darkest Star
Love you like no other 

Come for me

Never be another

Come for me

Took you, took your brother

Come for me 

No reason
I can discover

Come for me

Only lonely

Come for me

Everything that you told me

Come for me

From nothin' but dirt

Come for me

Do nothin' but hurt

Come for me

And I can feel you

But I don't know where you are

Won't you take me

However distant or far?

Come to me in secret dreams

From the darkest star

Won't you take me where you are?
Track Name: From The First
Lifting his head slightly, he held a postcard from her in his hands, reading it silently. She watched him. She always did. She always would. Far closer than he could dream to know but separated by an invisible barrier, like one-way glass, that only she could see. She spoke to him now, the very words he read. And he thought he dreamt he could see, could even touch her.

“You’ve always intrigued me”, she said, speaking what was written on the postcard from memory, “from the first moment I set my eyes on you. I wrote that sentence,” she continued, “several… no… many many days ago when I thought I could sum up how I feel about you on a postcard. You are unlike anyone I have ever known”.

With wonderment and tears streaming down his face, he went to her, touching her gently, gratefully. If he was dreaming, he thought, he mustn’t break the precious spell. She leapt into his arms and his heart was whole again. They kissed and then, speaking the rest of the card, she grabbed a boombox from the shelf… this one.

“Let’s rock this show one last time,” she said, “for us!”.
Track Name: Building The Shrine
Waking, he rose, full of purpose. The walls, he thought. Why is any of this here? “I want you around me”, he said. And he began to hang photos of her in every space, wherever his eye might fall, he would see her, always. And candles. A shrine. Sanctuary.
Track Name: Ocean
Swallow your tears and make them mine 

Tide's gone out and my mind's made up 

Swallow your tears and make them mine

Swallow your tears and I'll turn back time 

Tide's gone out and my mind's made up 

Until That Day 
Meet you under the waves- 

Walk all the way to heaven 

Until That Day!

Until That day!
Track Name: Torn
He couldn’t be sure which was worse - waking to another day, each morning torn from dreams, torn from her, or the long nights when sleep could not find him. Sometimes, he rode the train for hours, listening to the songs that were theirs. She would watch him, full of care and protection and not a little worried until he was safely home and under the covers. And she would watch him there, too. She would watch him in his sleep…
Track Name: So Anyway
Bury me underground 

Where I can't hear a sound

I'll just slip away

Like every yesterday

If I could take your place

The end you had to make

I'd gladly make it mine

Bring you back to find

All on our own

Only alone

For anybody else

And even for yourself

There's no one here to see

Still means the world to me

All on our own

Only alone

Send your dark clouds for me

What mighta coulda been

Can now never be

No need to defend

We all are in the end

Send your dark clouds unto me

I guess you probably know

Would even tell me so 

There isn't any doubt

I'm never finding out

All on our own

Only alone

Send your dark clouds for me

What mighta coulda been

Can now never be

No need to defend

We all are in the end 

Send your dark clouds unto me

So anyway I guess

It's only for the best

We'll have to leave it there

Still clawing at the air

All on our own

Only alone
Track Name: Phantom Limb
She would often visit, she would often come to him like this. Still in something like sleep, his eyes would open and he would see her. His angel was with him. They would pass a notebook back and forth, writing things. Later, upon waking he would try to remember it all. Get it down. She still had so much to show him. And in these times he could feel his old life, the beautiful one they had shared, vividly. Like a phantom limb. They would look out at a window together and see. She would grow, charmingly, guilelessly, drowsy. And he would carry her, his treasure, to their bed and fall asleep with her in his arms, her little feet curled around his ankles. Just like always. Just like always…
Track Name: Out
Don't call me out... 

And when you go

'Cause you're not mine 

I'm just one more 
thing to get behind you

So never mind 
forever more, anyway

Don't call me out

And every time you stray

It gets so hard to find a way 
I can't find you

From where I stand

Your words aren't clear

And I can see your life from here

But never mind forever more, anyway 

Don't call me out

Don't call me out just yet
Track Name: Regret and the Horrible Distance
He found such comfort in dreams, but darker things followed him, there, as well. How could he ever have wasted a moment in disagreement or even anger when those moments were so terribly numbered? Regret followed and ate at what remained of him. He sometimes woke like this. Feeling they’d had some horrible argument and thinking he just needed to get her on the phone. If they could just talk he could make it better. In the dream, he awoke to her ringtone - crickets - but couldn’t get to the phone in time to answer. He’d call and call to no avail, watching day turn to night. Feeling the crush of regret and the horrible distance between them.
Track Name: Never
Although you'll never know and it's much too late now 

Even if it's no one's fault how it always breaks down 

Even if there's only so much more that we can even take now 

Even so, there's one more thing I just gotta say now 

I didn't wanna 

I never wanted to

Fall in love with you

Thought it was something there just for me and you now 

So hard to see you share it with somebody new now 

But maybe it's all you know, it's just what you do now

I didn't wanna

I never wanted to

Fall in love with you

Can't believe the best thing

That I ever had 

Could make me feel so bad

I thought we'd have more time

I really thought we'd have our whole lives

I'll have to push that aside 

Pack up my heart, choke down my pride

'Cause that's him on the other line

That's his car just pulled up outside

I didn't wanna 
I never wanted to

Fall in love with you

Oh, my love…
(I'm sorry, so sorry)
Track Name: Our Oneness Can Never Be Erased
Someone told him, early on, that he should talk to her, imagining she could hear. At first it seemed a bit crazy but it grew on him and he grew to need it. What he needed now and so often did was to ask her forgiveness. “I’m so sorry, little sweetheart”, he’d say, his eyes welling with tears. What even he couldn’t imagine was how much she did hear. In the dream, he fell to his knees before her, but she lifted him up. The night sky opened above them. She crawled into his lap as they looked at the stars. And she whispered something in his ear. She also wrote it on his arm. “Our Oneness,” she told him, looking intently into his eyes, speaking with urgency and conviction, “Our Oneness Can Never Be Erased”.
Track Name: Necessary Weight
Maybe a thing or two

More left to say to you

On the way to the Love that's True

But you're always so far away

Misstep right off the mark

Words better said in the dark

Still stuck in my throat and heart

Always so far away

Your turn

Think it over sometime

Let it burn 

'Way it always does mine

Lay me down on the dash of your car

And dream of the place
I dreamt you are

Between an ice grey moon and the morning star

Always so far away 

Walls begin to crumble

And the ground just falls away

No matter what they told you

No matter what they say

Walls begin to crumble

And the earth just falls away

By any measurement or standard

It's just a necessary weight

Lay me down on the dash of your car

And dream of the place
I dreamt you are

Between a steel grey moon and the morning star

Always so far away

You're always so far away

Always so far away

So far away

Far away...
Track Name: And At That Hour, Above (Perigee-Syzygy)
And at that hour, above, as he stood weeping, he saw the clouds part upon high. The moon, full and miraculous, closer in its orbit than any lifetime, big as a planet. It passed, parting, but not without a promise.

"Nearer now," he heard her whisper. "Nearer now than you can imagine."

He felt his heart gasp.

“And always", she said, "Unto The Forever."
"Unto The Forever", he repeated between sobs.

And once more in tandem, together they spoke.

"Unto the forever. Unto The Forever", they vowed.
Track Name: Sometimes in Dreams
Sometimes, stirring but not wanting to surrender the world of sleep where he could find her, he would reach for a notebook near the bed in darkness, and try to write down, without ever opening his eyes, what she whispered to him in dreams.
Track Name: No Answer
No answer 

For the way you are

The way you are 
In my heart

All and all and only you

Nothing to do

Can't help but fall

Nothing more to choose

Happy to lose myself in you

Just fall

In my heart

In my heart
Track Name: Thousand Thousand Summer
For the way you are
A thousand things to say
In my heart
A thousand thousand
Track Name: Circle of Protection
Weary, his eyes burning, he lay down where he stood in the middle of the room. She circled him protectively, drawing the blinds, outing the lights and curling up at his side, whispering a song into his ear. "It's not about us", she said. "It was so dark for me once, too. Before I found you. Remember? We both said.”
Track Name: Dead End Street
You can talk yourself into anything 

Believe it's true

But nothing you can say

Will ever make me believe again in you 

All you did just to break it

All you do can't erase it

Dead End Street

Lost our way down a

Dead End Street

No return 

You tell me where to turn

When anything that ya wanna 
Is everything that you're gonna

You tell me who gets burned

When everything that ya wanna 
Is anything that ya gonna 

Dead End Street

We can never replace it…
Track Name: Sometimes He Lost His Way
Sometimes, often, he lost his way.

For a time, there was drink, in which he found no real solace but led him to further despair and sometimes danger.

“I’ll die all over again,” she tried to say to him, “if you just give up.”

But in these moments, when he needed most to, he simply couldn’t hear her. Even so, she would never leave him. Her heart was too stout, her soul too intrepid, her love too courageous for that.

As he wandered the streets in drunkenness and self-loathing she followed him, pulled at his hand as the headlights of a cab flashed by running a stop sign. As he waited for a subway train, standing perilously close to tracks, she stood guard, unseen and un-sensed, guiding him over the gap and into the deserted late-night car.

Huddled against the wall, the tears coming again, he asked to be taken. But she spoke to him, softly and purposefully.

“No,”, she said. “No, my love. Not yet.”

He thought he heard her and so he answered, “But when? And how will I know it is my time?”

She sat with him on the small seat he’d crumpled himself into. “You will know. I will tell you. I will come and collect you, sweetheart. But not just yet.”

He had a far away look and she wasn’t sure she’d reached him. As he staggered out at the next stop and down the platform toward the exit to the street, she followed, concerned and vigilant, prodding him home until he fell safely, if sadly, into bed.

His sleep was restless, tortured, but she remained…
Track Name: Any Day
My stupid hands 

My foolish mouth

Let the one cover the other

Never let it out

I'll never know

It's so unfair

Dreamt you float alive above me 

Catch you in mid-air 

If only...

'Cause now you're gone… (hey, now)

Now you're gone

And I'm still alive

And any day is a good day to die
(…/I) 
Don't sleep

Can't find my way

There's nothing left of me without you

All I need to say to you

But now you're gone … (hey, now)

Now you're gone

And I'm still alive

And any day is a good day to die

Close my eyes to find you

I'm right behind you

'Cause nothing so unkind could be true

Sleep is finally mine

And you...

But daylight shatters

Daylight shatters

Nothing matters

Any day's a good day to die...
Track Name: As Dawn Broke (She Watched Over Him)
As dawn broke she watched over him still, gently smoothing the worry lines out of his forehead. She rose and opened a small box from the shrine of her treasures he kept so faithfully. When she opened it- as I do now - the most beautifully sweet fragrance began to fill the room. Her fragrance – like cotton candy or the best birthday cake anyone ever made for you. And waking, he knew. He knew his angel was with him.

Rising with hope and faith and purpose he listened, sensing but not seeing her. He spoke quietly - too quietly for us to hear. He spoke quietly to her, the spirit he could feel in the room. And although he was looking in the entirely wrong direction, she was there, listening attentively. He wrote feverishly in their notebook as she whispered in his ear. And he was looking in entirely the wrong direction but could clearly hear her.
Track Name: Comin' Home
Build their walls around 

Just to keep you down

But they don't see you

They don't know

What they say - don't do it

Nothing more than a lie

And they choose it

They don't see you

They don't know

Tell me somethin'

Tell me all

Can't wait 
I'm comin' home

You're everything I think of

Everything I love

Lived a lonely life

And swore 
I was maybe alive before

But whatever that was I don't know

Built my life around you

Couldn't ever really live without you

Just you and me 
I know that you know 

Tell me somethin'

Tell me all

Can't wait 
I'm comin' home 

You're everything I think of

Everything I love

Comin' home

Tell me somethin', tell me all

Comin' home, Summer

I can't wait

I'm comin' home 

You're everything
I think of 

Everything I love...
Track Name: Day Turns to Beautiful Night
As day turned to beautiful night, shadows overtaking the sun and still so very certain of her presence, he lit his candles. Waiting and wordlessly calling to her from deep within his being, Calling to her - the other half of his soul.
Track Name: Lost Life
I still remember the day that we met

I'm still not anywhere over it yet

I remember the day that you died

I only wanna be with you on
The Other Side 

And somehow 

Someday

Somewhere

Some way

It was a beautiful life that we had

And I miss you, now, baby

Oh, so bad.

The Light's gone out

And I ache like thunder

I still need you

And I just wonder if...

Somehow

Someday

Somewhere

Some way...

Ah!

Life's so lonely without you

But I bet

I haven't even seen the worst of it yet

All the love inside you

It saved me

And I know

That wherever you are now sweetheart 
Is where I must go 

So, somehow 

Someday 

Somewhere

Some way

Ah!

And you are!
And you are!
And you are!

In this moment she appeared to him. In this waking hour he saw and could see. Overcome with emotion he understood at last. She beckoned and he returned to her joyfully, as she said, simply… now!
Track Name: Forever After Montage
"Angels" lyrics (condensed version)

Call the angels in for me
Let it all come to be

Because a lifetime is just not enough
And the earth could never hold me
Because I still need you so much
So let the love that has so blessed us
Finally take me to my rest
And then…

Call the angels in for me
Let it all come
Let it all come
Let it all come to be
