Lurr Groovy psych rock with a brooding bite. The organ spread throughout this album really accentuates the spacey, retro vibe very nicely. Love it. Favorite track: Eyeball.

Nerve Salad Quite stunning psych rock with a little touch o' eyeliner. I'm hearing some talk of Morrison and Nick Cave influences in the vox, but I'm hearing some Carl McCoy, maybe a hint of Steele in there, too. This whole album is a ballsy psych escapade into many territories, each a smooth ride in itself... don't wait on this one. It's really something.
Lute FP

Lute FP Heavy, doomy, grungy and brooding. Takes influences from a variety of places while largely reminding me of contemporary band Grusom or classic Nick Cave. An organ runs through it, giving it a nice retro/psych undercurrent. The latter half of the album has a definite Morrison vibe.
Reek Of STOOM

Reek Of STOOM Hypnotic, shimmering vistas of blissed-out Stoner Psych Favorite track: Lies.
Bucky

Bucky This album grows on you with each listen. I find this absolutely riveting the way it meanders with psychedelic and melodic passages, innate grooves and tantalizing vocals. The Jim Morrison vibes are heavy with a pronounced psychedelic flair and spacey atmosphere. This is some tranquilizing shit. Favorite track: From Nowhere.

Waiting on the dream Waiting on the dream Everybody wants to walk outside not me Everybody wants to walk outside the dream Lately I can’t find But frankly I don’t mind Everybody wants to walk outside not me Everybody wants to walk outside

Eyeball 05:38
You can’t get up You don’t even try You just feel stuck You feel like you died Inject the Caffeine in your EyeBall Oh Lord! Won’t you relieve me Of this headache Of this heartache of mine Oh Lord! Won’t you relieve me Of this pain Of this pain in my side Inject the Caffeine in your EyeBall

Hawk Rock 03:22
Beaks and talons Soar Riding on the sky with open wings Soar Cutting through the air Riding out anxieties See the eyes are locking on their prey Riding out anxieties And looking out for a safe place to stay Beaks and talons Soar Riding on the sky with open wings Soar Cutting through the air Riding out anxieties See the eyes are locking on their prey Riding out anxieties And looking out for a safe place to stay Riding out anxieties See the eyes are locking on their prey Riding out anxieties See the claws are locking for the kill Kill

From Nowhere 07:51
The sign in the road says we’re going nowhere Born nor raised conjured out of thin air Our bodies mere vessels we can keep our minds clear Memories transported over many light years We’re from nowhere And where we’ll go you’ll never know The sign in the road says we’re going nowhere The Sat Nav’s on the destination nowhere Utopian dreams turn to smoke and mirrors Kill your brother, cast us out to nowhere We’re from Nowhere And where we’ll go you’ll never know
5.
Don’t go Don’t go into the blue You’re just a kid you shouldn’t know how to Stay into the light No one will harm you tonight Don’t let them don’t let them won’t let them catch you They’ll never catch you speaking the whole truth Safer trapped in a lie No one will harm you deep inside on and on and on find yourself in the blue Don’t go don’t go down into the blue Demons and sea beasts gather around you What’s that under your bed Pales to the things inside your head On and on and on find yourself in the blue

7 Blows 07:27
All you’ve ever loved All you’ve ever bought All you’ve ever longed for Lies here on the ground All you’ve ever loved All you’ve ever built All you’ve ever worked for Deadly on the floor Now I walk in shadow Feel the weight on my shoulders All you’ve ever loved All you’ve ever dreamt All you’ve ever worried about Lies here on the earth They say it’s all right They say it’ll pass They say you just talk your way through But they don’t see this tunnel holds only the dark Now I walk in shadow Feel the weight on my shoulders As I stare at the silver Feel low Can you feel Can you feel it Smell the deep, green fear Fear is an invisible mountain Standing between you and your potential Reach out for the clouds And tear it all down Tear it to the ground Start running running running running
7.
Lies 03:11
I’m up here watching I’m down there running I’m up here watching I’m down there running Am I running to? Am I running for? Am I in a treadmill Run just to run just to run just to run It’s all lies I’m up here watching I’m down there running I'm up here watching I’m down there running I look like an ant Working for the man Stuck in the web Creepy crawly creepy It’s all lies It’s all lies
8.
Call the men Call the cops Call them in I killed a man But I don’t feel I sit on my hands and knees Watching him While all is draining Call the men Oh, call the cops Call them in I killed a man Still I don’t feel these scars are now my eyes Watching him While all is draining All I had I gave All I gave to you

about

Outside the Dream is No Man’s Valley’s most personal work to date. The art and lyrical concept originate from a period of inner turmoil visualized in the tunnel on the outside and inside of the LP. The creation of the album proved to be a cathartic process, and it taught the band that music can truly be a healing power. However, Outside The Dream could not have been made by No Man’s Valley alone. The band acknowledges and cherishes all of the good people that made this release possible by donating and pre-ordering massively through the successful crowdfunding campaign. The record label Tonzonen Records and its main man Dirk Raupach have also played a vital role in its creation.

The recording process was more compact than ever with the band spending only four days cramped together in a b&b-studio near Utrecht with producer/mixer Matthijs Kievit. Most of it was recorded live with the full band for that connected band-feel. All of the vocals were recorded separately in a menacing five hours at Studio Joneski in Hilversum. Pieter Kloos (Motorpsycho, Dool, 7Zuma7) took care of the mastering.
