The Headlock of Aggressive Sleep


Bonnie Prince Billy - Cursed Sleep (Director: Andy Bruntel)


Angela Darling - The Stars Are Far Apart (mp3): Hailing from California, Brandon reminds me a bit of Mike Kinsella... plucking a few thoughts as his breathing diary slows for the evening and rocking himself to sleep.

The Shins - Sleeping Lessons (mp3): This is the opening track from the 2007 release "Wincing The Night Away". It introduces a fresh experimental effort that applies the band's characteristic vocal to a broader exploration of the musical universe than just the rock stage.

Yoko Ono (ft Antony & The Johnsons) - Toy Boat (mp3): A collaboration from Ono's intriguing 2007 release "Yes, I'm a Witch", which also features The Flaming Lips, Apples in Stereo, Polyphonic Spree, and Cat Power... just to name a few. Look for her dance remix album called "Open Your Box" coming out in April.
