Hey, are you watching Dazed and Confused? You're not? Because it sounds like you are. Oh, we're just listening to Free Energy on our headphones? Sorry, we got mixed up. Free Energy, who kinda sorta used to be Lookout! Records' Hockey Night, linked up with James Murphy and recorded an album of Thin Lizzy-loving, ’70s classic rock soft triumphs. "Dream City," the first track to surface from their fall-slated DFA debut, is a light doozy of chants, handclaps and guitar power that smells like sweat and beer. But not a lot, because the people that smell like sweat and beer are never the people who you want to own that movie authenticity. They're just gross. Free Energy isn't gross. Or maybe they are, we don't know them. See for yourself, they've got a few shows coming up in Philadelphia and New York City, where we hear dreams come true.
