Sleep Party People
from We Are Drifting On A Sad Song
Blood and Biscuits 2012
Listen to "Chin MP3
Sleep Party People is the project of Copenhagen-based multi-instrumentalist Brian Batz. The new release includes 9 tracks of wonderfully imaginative electronic dream pop. Otherworldly and hazy melodies deftly build into post-rock climaxes. Wearing rabbit masks on stage (to overcome shyness), Brian and his band put on an excellent live show. Be sure to catch them on tour this spring.
We Are Drifting On A Sad Song is also available on 12" color vinyl (with MP3 download) directly from Blood and Biscuits.
Check out the unsettlngly beautiful video directed by young Danish director Marie Limkilde for the album opener A DARK GOD HEART.

The Mary Onettes
“Love's Taking Strange Ways"
from Love Forever EP
Labrador Records 2012
Listen to "Love's Taking Strange Ways MP3
Sweden's The Mary Onettes have shifted gears with their new EP. Working with producer Dan Lissvik, the band moves away from some of their darker and grander moments, while still exploring 80's inspired sounds. Most reminiscent of the band's earlier releases, the heartbroken LOVE'S TAKING STRANGE WAYS recalls the sweeping choruses of the band's stellar 2009 release ISLANDS. The track is available as a free download at Labrador Records.
