Sleep Whale’s quiet ecstasy

Sleep Whale – “Cotton Curls”

Beginning with a sweet and ponderous bell intro that hints of Balinese Gamelan music, Sleep Whale’s “Cotton Curls” evolves into a weaving, waving, softly delicious dream. Rather extreme filters and other effects on the vocals add to the originality of the piece, rather than distract from it. Intriguing and foreign, while strangely accessible and distinctly human. Also, I have to say arbitrarily, really perfect early autumn Sunday afternoon music. So it goes up today! Enjoy.
