A loose concept EP, Dream Mine is a tribute to 80's dystopic cyber punk. Lantern bends their broken Rock 'N' Roll to the brink - melting together blues, punk, ambient and experimental textures to create a murky, bleak canvas of pure RNR.
Recorded in various cities over the span of a year. Montreal, Philadelphia and New Smyrna, Florida.

Released as a cassette on Bathetic Records of Asheville, NC.
From Bathetic Records:
"After a couple of killer cassettes on Night-People and also perpetually backing everyone's favorite crooner, Dirty Beaches, Lantern steps over to Bathetic with their new cassette, Dream Mine.
The tape comes out sounding like a rotgut, fucked up, long-lost Stooges bootleg -- while coincidentally there is in fact a 7 minute version of the classic "I Wanna Be Your Dog" -- but with a bunch of weird shit going on that breaks up the slurred rock, like the heroin-withdrawal rambling drone of "Fool's Gold." This tape is like dreaming of finger-popping the hottest girl in class, but you're actually face-deep in a vat of tar, all gasping and choking, snorting and flailing.
Not for the faint of heart, this is a slab of hot n' raw, wild n' nasty. Voodoo drips off the tape as it unwinds. Dip in and get shanked."
