I would have you know that as I write this I am attempting to control some rather wild laughter. God, how does one forget to post after a month? This isn’t even the first time this has happened, mind you. And if Im entirely honest, probably not the last either. God, Im horrible with consistency. That aside though, lets listen to:
I’m Not Human At All (Live) – Sleep Party People
Sleep Party People is, as their Facebook page so puts it, “the brainchild of Brian Batz, a Danish multi-instrumentalist with a boundless imagination”. Having started off as the solo project of Batz, he then later added up four more people for live shows and became a quintet. A quintet with a fancy for creepy bunny masks and hoodies.
With inspirations ranging from Lynch to Satie, Batz creates tunes which border on magical and dreamlike – all-in-all, the group showcases some pretty eerie, hypnotic and dark instrumental/ambient stuff. One reviewer at Sputnikmusic likes to describe Sleep Party People as ‘very dynamic lullabies for the twisted’, which I find hits the spot perfectly. Twisted lullabies, a tinge of M83 and some melodic My Bloody Valentine traces and voila – Sleep Party People is born.
I’m Not Human At All is on their album Chin.
Listen to it on the live Copenhagen X Sessions here.
