But as much as the band’s fourth album, American Dream, marks a rebirth, it’s also obsessed with endings: of friendships, of love, of heroes, of a certain type of geeky fandom, of the American dream itself. These are big, serious topics for a project that essentially started as a goof, but it’s the direction Murphy has taken since Sound of Silver’s Someone Great combined his affection for bubbling synths with a poignancy about the fleeting nature of life. Whereas Murphy once took on all of these influences lightly and cleverly, they feel heavier across much of American Dream’s 70 minutes, with the lingering responsibilities of a disappearing history becoming more apparent. On paper, that might sound like a bit of a slog, but this is not the case.

American Dream, which began life as a solo album before Nancy Whang and Pat Mahoney rejoined to give Murphy sounding-boards off which to bounce ideas, is effectively a straight continuation of its predecessor’s amalgam of electropop, new wave and krautrock, in varying proportions, with varying success. Oh Baby opens proceedings with a softly metallic pulse, like a polite jackhammer, with keyboards gradually layered over before propulsive fuzz-bass punches in, heralding a yearning organ line. Which is not to say that it’s an album entirely without attractions. Change Your Mind skillfully conveys alienation through the alliance of Can-style groove and Fripp-style shards of skronk guitar – shades of Bowie and Eno in mid-‘70s Berlin – while the hop, skip and jump beat, crusty bassline and damped, nibbling guitar of Other Voices has an infectious appeal.
American Dream is an expression often used to describe the vital ideals of the US population in both the material and spiritual senses. The American dream is the ideal of freedom and opportunity, the spiritual power of the nation. If the American system is a skeleton of US policy, the American dream is its soul. The source of the phrase American Dream is considered to be The Epic of America (1931), historical treatise by James Adams written during the Great Depression. James Adams encouraged his compatriots and reminded them of the purpose of America and its achievements.
