Dan Rutstrom is the singular mind behind Arcadia Gardens, a pshycadelic-pop solo-project that has yielded two albums including Memory Machines, released in May of this year. The Murfreesboro, TN based surf-synth artist produces reverb-heavy but conceptually light music that he describes as, “dreamy sounds that take you on an adventure.”
So, what does a dream adventure sound like? In Rutstrom’s case the airiness of his vocals and fluidity of the synth riffs create a fresh sound, providing the perfect soundtrack for a sunny summer afternoon in the park. To hear some of his “dreamy sounds” check out a free download of a track from Memory Machines, “Sun Sphere,” below.
