Dream Boat’s Fevers EP may be painted in the off-color shades of ’70s smut, but this mystery project from Providence couldn’t possibly be the soundtrack for whatever trouble the two ladies on the cover are up to. The space between “dream” and “boat” here is key: Sina Sorab invites aboard a sampler and guides us across the REM seas, on the condition that we sleep four hours past our cellphone alarms so we can access the flashing nightmares that tell us something about ourselves. “Your Beaches” rides the vertiginous contours of the hour-less slow-burn that is sleep; it’s the bleach that burns your hands long after you’ve left the bathroom, the threat of the gas stove you forgot to check twice.
