Would would have thought that a publicist could be the key to dream collaborations? Well that’s who to thank for this track among Joywave, Mick Jenkins, and Little Simz. The Rochester, NY group lent two of its two members, Daniel Armbruster and Sean Donnelly, to lay down a Gothic track for the two emcees and singer–Daniel. Sometimes reality can seem like a bad dream that you need to fight to take control of.

This version of “Bad Dreams” is an alternate version that will be on Joywave’s album, How Do You Feel Now? You can also catch them at SXSW:

03/18 Austin, TX – Holy Mountain (Secret Sounds day party)
03/18 Austin, TX – Buffalo Billiards (Paradigm Agency showcase)
03/21 Austin, TX – The Gatsby (Pandora Discovery Den day party)

Bryan Hahn just imagined a collab between Muse and these guys. Crazy. He’s on Twitter (@notupstate).
