Sleep – Over – “Casual Diamond” – [Hippos In Tanks]

Dianthus   6/24/2011   7-inch, A Library

If you have ever imagined what song Kyle MacLachlan from Twin Peaks might do a striptease to, I think the song “Casual Diamond” just might be it. The Austin trio Sleep – Over brings hauntingly, harmonious, whispy vocals to some dreary, stretched-out guitars glittered in echoes and tunneling snares. This song makes you want to gather a sleeping bag, some popcorn, that really weird doll that grandma gave you and your tweeny girlfriends and go watch a David Lynch marathon. Flip this little forty- fiver over and enjoy the Brooklyn born electronic composer Laurel Halo remix the tune. She brings the synthed, industrial beats to the “adult sleep over” where you had just danced all night but are still not ready to hit the hay yet because your buddy just brought you a mimosa at 3am. If you enjoy the ghostly vocals of the Cocteau Twins laced with some David Torn – style guitars, you should be able to curl up next to Stefanie Franciotti and her 2 newest recruits from some of Austin’s best bands Pure X and Silent Diane. All together they make Sleep – Over one yummy auditory sundae.
