sleepy.ab is a four-piece post-rock band from Hokkaido, Japan formed in April 2002. They describe their music as having characteristic melodies of transparency and floating aimlessly. The “ab” in their name stands for “abstract”, and it isn’t pronounced when spoken.

sleepy.ab members are: 成山剛 (Tsuyoshi Nariyama) on vocals/guitar , 山内憲介 (Kensuke Yamauchi) on guitar, 田中秀幸 (Hideyuki Tanaka) on bass guitar, and 津波秀樹 (Hideki Tsuha) on drums.

sleepy.ac is an alternative name of sleepy.ab coming from their newest acoustic live album “sleepy.ac「LIVE@Sapporo Kitara」”. “ac” for acoustic instead of “ab” for abstract. [ sleepy.ab ] or [ sleepy.ac ] ~ [ Acoustic ] or [ Electric ] ~ With Drummer [ Hideki Tsuha ] or Without Drummer [ Hideki Tsuha ] the band is bind to make good music. It's how they say some people are just born with the gift and sleepy is damn right one of them. This acoustic live rec is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. DO NOT SKIP.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
