Flashback Friday

15 Nov

I’m going to start recycling some of my older posts on Fridays. There are a lot of amazing artists out there who get tucked away and overlooked, and sometimes if they release something buzz-worthy it’s only in the spotlight for a few weeks. These posts will attempt to revisit some of those bands.

This is somewhat of a family effort… Big bro sometimes strikes gold with his finds (when he’s not listening to Rihanna or Ke$ha) – and so Good Old War gets chalked up as a win from him. Some really simple acoustic chantey’s that go perfect with a hot choco in your hand, a fire at your back, and a view of snow fall in front.

Dad has been pretty useless lately (sorry pops). It seems he either goes on folk focused tangents, or sporadic genre detours. That being said he is usually the man behind the biggest bands I listen to year in and year out – so the digressions obviously serve a greater whole.

In typical Sleeping Son fashion, here is the latest round-up:

Good Old War – Coney Island:

Oh No Oh My – Walking Into Me:

Trophy Wife – Take this Night:

Sleeping Son

30 Apr

Take the time to listen, a few require patience.

That said, I think it’s possible this list holds some serious year-end candidates. It’s also possible that the Summer-induced elation is providing rose-colored glasses.


Theme Park – Ghosts:

Electric Guest – Awake:

The Spinto Band – Take It:

Theophilus London – Love Is Real (Fred Falke Remix)

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – You Need Me On My Own:

Kindness – House:

REID – Miami:

Metric – Youth Without Youth

Sleeping Son

23 Sep

I know this is a music blog. But sometimes it doesn’t feel that way – sometimes it feels like more.

Debuting the newest Coldplay song, or reviewing some album people don’t know about – seems irrelevant. For me, it’s about sharing something.

If you’ve never heard John Wooden talk, I suggest you try it. Below are two videos that really make you understand how simple life can be, and should be.


Hopefully he can share some of his endless wit with you.

Bombay Bicycle Club

Sunopsis: Surfer Blood meets Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (relevant)

Bombay Bicycle Club – How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep:

Bombay Bicycle Club – Shuffle:

Sleeping Son

4 Mar

It’s been a while since I last made a ‘Sleeping Son’ post, that being said, it’s been a while since I last posted anything. But, I recently talked to my dad on the phone and we both agreed: Radiohead was disappointing, Tahiti 80’s album is sweetness, and Destroyer still holds this years ‘album of the year’ title, so far.

Here are some other amazing tunes that my dad told me about 5 months ago – and in typical Dave fashion I hadn’t checked them out until now.

The ACB’s – Boy Like Me:

Hey Rosetta – Yer Spring:

The Heavenly States – Model Son:
