SESSION: Sleep Party People

in Sessions by

Straight out of a Donnie Darko lucid dream come the bunnie mask wearing project of Brian Batz. Inspired by the works of Boards of CanadaDavid LynchErik Satie and some classic movie soundtacks, Batz found the sound through an old battered piano coupled with a freaky electronic alteration of his recorded voice creating on eerie hypnotic sound. Sleep Party People released their self titled debut album on Speed Of Sound in 2010 and have more recently released their follow up ‘We Were Drifting On A Sad Song’ this year on Blood and Biscuits.

Sleep Party People – the soundtrack for your dreams.

SESSION: Get Your Gun

in Sessions by

Get Your Gun hails from the northernmost part of the musical underground of Denmark. The trio was formed in 2008 by brothers Simon and Andreas Westmark and Søren Nørgaard. The band’s sound is built around a combination of raw bursts of energy and monotonous drones. This is supported by a song universe containing noise, desperation and evil from the outmost corners. In January 2011, after a string of demo releases, Get Your Gun recorded the single ‘Death Rattle’ and the b-side ‘Ghost of Scandinavia’ in a small backyard studio in Aalborg, released on 7″ vinyl by Aalborg underground label Empty Tape and recently released their debut 3 track (plus bonus) EP ‘Get Your Gun’ in January 2012.
