Like a framed snapshot in a pop-music timeline, this album cover and its impossibly pure, aquamarine splash of color signifies for many a benchmark in the evolution of indie-rock. Emerging from California sun-drenched punk, but colored by the darker hues of New York’s own musical tableaux (Velvet Underground, Television), The Dream Syndicate’s sound was a wash of droney guitar feedback, melodies carved with a chugging, muscular rhythm section and razor-edged rhythm guitar. Dubbed “the Paisley Underground,” L.A.’s burgeoning scene of psychedelic-influenced post-punk was seeded with a good number of solid bands, but the Dream Syndicate’s first album became a standard-bearer of the genre. Bookended by the languorous yet robust “Tell Me When It’s Over” and the explosive title track, where the guitars coil and spring like a hungry beast, several equally powerful tracks — like the howling “Then She Remembers,” the rollicking “Definitely Clean,” and the album’s stealthy centerpiece, “Halloween” — comprise one of the finest moments in the metamorphosis of punk into something more accessible, without compromise or dilution. Sheer beauty.
