DEEP SLEEP – THREE THINGS AT ONCE CD
There’s a saying that two’s company, three’s a crowd. Well that doesn’t apply to this DEEP SLEEP CD, because three’s definitely good company here. One of my favourite current bands at the minute and I’ve loved them since I bought their ‘You’re Screwed’ 7” a couple of years ago. Since then, they’ve released the ‘Manic Euphoria’ 7” and the brand spanking new ‘Paranoid Futures’ 7” – all on my favourite current label GRAVE MISTAKE RECORDS who has released this CD and compiled them all for us. This nifty package includes reproductions of the covers of the 7”s, lyrics, photos – just the way it needs to be done when doing these discography type releases. There are 21 songs here that showcase how DEEP SLEEP have honed and crafted some incredible songs that have a stripped down melodic sound, which is catchy and memorable. Each beat is heartfelt and the melodic riffs are coupled with some times frantic blasts of rousing hardcore beats, that ooze mini anthems in a day and age where the scene is awash with apathy and nothing else. A marriage made in heaven of sounds influenced from the likes of ADOLESCENTS, DESCENDENTS, ANTI, BLACK FLAG and countless more. This fantastic anthology is mandatory purchase and definitely well worth your hard earned cash.
