DEEP SLEEP: Turn Me Off: 12” EP

Jul 14, 2011

Hey, who put All into my hardcore? Deep Sleep. It’s noodly, but the noodles are kept in the bowl of the song (and aren’t at the top of the mix). Deep Sleep’s abrasive, like how sandpaper takes the burrs off, but the result’s a smooth finish that shows off the natural wood grain. Burly, with a purpose, without being unwieldy. Heavy without being “tough.” Deep Sleep are movers who clear out an entire truck in record time without chipping a single dish or dinging a chair leg. There’s something gratifying about listening to a band that’s getting the job done so efficiently and crisply.
