Ghastly City Sleep

2009-03-31 13:29:11 UTC
Ghastly City Sleep combine the finest elements of shoegazer and ambiance along with an acute penchant for melody to create an absolutely stunning array of material. While two pieces nearly reach the six-minute mark and the other two eclipse nine, the whole offering flows with a smooth liquidity, creating one solidified, captivating body of work that easily becomes one of the most exciting and groundbreaking releases we’ve been a part of to date. The four young men involved in Ghastly City Sleep don’t keep to one instrument long, as the entire collective can be found playing everything from guitars, keys, various percussion and just about everything in between. The multitude of layers involved here are accompanied by a warm yet haunting array of vocals, all helping to produce this simply epic debut. The group (with current and former members of City of Caterpillar, Gregor Samsa and Majority Rule) formed back in 2005 after transplanting from Richmond, VA but only just finished the recordings, completed via Alex Aldi at Gigantic Studios in New York City (Asobi Seksu, The Fall, etc...) www.myspace.com/ghastlycitysleep Artist - Ghastly City Sleep Album - Moondrifts Release Date - 2010 Genre - Ambient, Shoegaze-like, Dream-pop Tracklist 01.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
