Label: Hippos In Tanks
Genre: Rock, psych pop, ambient
Comments: From the promoter: "Forever, the debut LP from Austin-based Stefanie Franciotti, is a record of pastoral psychedelia, swirling texture, and unforgettable vocal strains, combining both synth landscapes and pop architecture to create an unfolding sense of yearning... Her voice weaves in and out of brethren synth and guitar timbres, unfolding over time outlined by minimal drum machine pulse, creating tape-saturated pop gems and ominous moments of synth shimmer that recall both dream pop and industrial urgency."
As that blurb indicates, Sleep ∞ Over's music alternates between hazy, psychedelic rock--Franciotti has connections to summertime playlist faves Pure X--and ambient noise pop. It's a very interesting mix, at times more accessible than others, so stick with tracks 2, 5, 7 and 4.
