A DJ JMULL FAVORITE
SleepMakesWaves raises the bar with their new EP. Their sound is one that is right up there with Explosions In The Sky, only at times they give a broad and tastefully intense side that never sounds out of place or overdone.
A lack of vocals give the group a chance to show the power a bass, guitar, and a drum kit (and a violin on track 5) can produce. They create a modern, amped-up rock symphony with elusive bass melodies, drum fills, guitar riffs and solos that echo the reverb of Jimi Hendrix.
SleepMakesWaves is a joy to listen to. They have all the right qualities for addicting and infectious melodies. They can be dark and heavy, they can be noisy, or they can be fun and The chords they create over their inventive rhythms pulled together by a hint of ambient sound surrounding the creative layers of every track, you cant help but enjoy the wonderful music.
There are bands out there that try to get the style Explosions In The Sky create, but credit given where credit due, SleepMakesWaves is above the rest. They are on cloud nine, as this album is fantastic. It is a great blend of intense, chill and fun straight up rock. Hit this band up. Whether you listen online, or buy the EP, they are worth it.
