Sleeping People

REPOST!  San Diego, CA's Sleeping People constructed some crazy-off-the-wall math rock that was both challenging and hypnotizing.  To start, this band is absolutely nuts!  Frenzied time signatures of twinkling guitars blend with constantly driving bass rhythms that all wrap around some insane drum skills that are all jazzed-up and loaded with clever mathy transitions that go everywhere.  This band is solid all the way around.  Genius songwriting and craft-man's ship is the least I can say about what I've heard.  I almost shit myself when I heard they dropped their latest EP this year after a 6 year hiatus.  Snag everything below if you haven't already indulged.  Dig!

  1. I too, almost pooed myself when I saw that they have a new release. Thanks for posting this! Awesome blog.

  2. Wow. I haven't heard anything math-y that's been remotely interesting in a long-ass time. Thanks for posting this. Great blog, man.

    If I wanted to send you something to review/post, where should it go?
