Sleep ∞ Over

Forever (Hippos in Tanks)

Alongside close local contemporaries Pure X and Neon Indian, Sleep ∞ Over is redefining Texas slowcore for the chillwave generation. While essentially the solo vehicle of Stefanie Franciotti, her debut full-length sounds like a full-band affair, with woozy synths, minimal drums, and breathy vocals. Forever is a mood album, heavily sedated and perpetually out of focus, like an R.E.M. dream after cough syrup. ***
