AH! I played in a band called Diarrhea Planet last night, here in Nashville....it was quite a night.
What this is really about though, is The Sleeping Sea. Personally, I feel like these guys are doing something incredibly unique, in their live show and in their recordings. It would be like if you took.....don't crucify me......Vampire Weekend and made it really good. It'll make sense when you hear it.
Not to mention they're giving it to you for FREE here at RMSS!! Anyways, these guys deserve all of the attention that they're going to be getting in the coming months and the Sun Drips Ep is more than enough evidence of that.
Gorgeous harmonies combined with low key-jangly guitar playing, subtle-but-fitting drum parts, and various other instrumentation, this release and this group is sure to have you head nodding in a completely relaxed state. PERFECT music for end of summer going into fall.
For fans of Yo La Tengo/Vampire Weekend/The Radio Dept.
4 out of 5 RONS.
