about

Dream Worlds is the latest release from accomplished producer and record label owner, Daniel Jumpertz.

Brooklyn-based Jumpertz has been working with former DFA engineer Abe Seiferth (Yeasayer, Kurt Vile, Elanor Friedburger) since 2012 to fashion Dream Worlds — the first in a series of releases that document the Australian musician’s six years in New York City.

Jumpertz is also a songwriter, singer and guitarist for indie band Clairaudience, which plays gigs across Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn (Otto’s Shrunken Head, The Cake Shop, Lit Lounge, Fat Baby and Pete’s Candy Store). You can even find him doing the occasional DJ set at Williamsburg’s Baby’s All Right.

His weekly music podcast, Shock of the New, is on Mixcloud, Soundcloud and at www.danieljumpertz.com

released March 11, 2016

Dream in Grey was written in Erskineville (a suburb of Sydney) and recorded in demo form on my 4 track recorder in 1996. The song never left my head though. When I started writing songs for my band Clairaudience in 2013 I remembered Dream In Grey and began working on a demo to take to the band. It didn't really fit for Clairaudience, but I continued tinkering and with Abe Seiferth's input the whole recording really came together. 

Change Down Your Shadow is another track that dates from the same time as Dream in Grey - around that period 1996. It's never been performed live or released, and has gone through phases as being called Deep Under Water, Falling and Into The Shimmering Sky, but it was when I handed it over to Marc Eiden aka The Artificial Limb in 2009 that it came together in its current form. Marc didn't change the music, but added some great words and a rousing sing-along chorus at the end. 

////// Lyrics::::::
There is something left to do
What does it take to get this through
So many people, to open that door
Lets break the law
Theres a ghost in the room
I’ll guess we’ll get therer pretty soon
Sell your possessions, burn down the past
We can make it last

End of the season and the signs are shifting round
If you keep up with your ‘look what I found’
Cancel your membership,  change the point of view
The map is missing, the thorns are getting through
Collect your memories remember what you find

You wont know me, when you close your mind

Change down your shadow (repeat) //////

People Are Afraid was included on my 2005 Alpen album Overdub, and this version builds on that released version - with the addition of some new elements - some synth and keyboard parts.

The Unknown is the most recent composition on Dream Worlds. It emerged from a demo I was preparing for Clairaudience in 2015 - and we actually performed the song once (at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn).

////// Lyrics::::::
It takes, so long to reach you here,
but minutes to, get home
Sometimes you sail with the breeze at your back, And sometimes those headwinds are strong

The unknown / Will we ever, meet again?

There is, your home
And there is, the unknown
You live, somewhere in between
And you’re always falling between the cracks

The unknown / Will we ever, meet again?

It’s times like this, when I need a friend
But so often come up short
Reaching blindly into the fog
Your ghost dances with me

The unknown / Will we ever, meet again? //////

To See One's Self From Above was included on my 2011 album Inside The Sky. This new version was remixed by Abe Seiferth in 2015. The original recording was built from a loop I extracted from a Clairaudience jam session held in 2004 and then expanded on in 2006 with John Tjhia on drums and Chrystal Lynch and Joanna Lavelle on vocals.
