sleep whale: houseboat.

I’ve been anxiously following Texas electroacoustic wizards Sleep Whale ever since I came across the video for “Little Brite.” This month their first full length album, Houseboat, was finally released and it was more than worth the anticipation.

Acoustic and airy and alive, “Houseboat” just feels fresh. Their blend of organic sounds and digital sounds feels authentic, and one is never at the sacrifice of the other. Listening  makes me feel nomadic and untethered.

Here are my two favourite tracks, for your own freedom-inducing listening enjoyment:

Summer Sick

Light Tunnel

Whatcha Thinkin?
