headphone commute

I couldn’t have written a better piece than what was on the Headphone Commute Bandcamp page…….

This colossal compilation has been curated by Headphone Commute to benefit all of those affected by Hurricane Sandy, the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, which has devastated portions of the Caribbean, Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States in late October 2012. 100% of all the proceeds generated from the sale of this album will be donated towards two charitable organizations: Doctors Without Borders and The Humane Society. The artists on the release have been hand-picked to showcase the world’s top talent in ambient, modern classical, and experimental music. The unprecedented selection features many unreleased pieces composed exclusively for the cause.

The Sleep Design – Kings

sleep design

The Sleep Design based out of Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee have just released ‘Kings’, the follow up to the excellent 2010 debut release ‘All That Is Not Music Is Silence’. They certainly have lost none of their talent  for writing stunning post-rock songs or their appeal for writing the most incredible melodic songs, check out ‘When We Meet’ to hear what I mean. ‘Kings’ is an excellent release, 5 tracks at just under 25 minutes in length. There is a natural break in the EP with the track ‘Air’ composed mostly of soundscapes but it is just a quiet break before the last two tracks ‘Settling’ and ‘When We Meet’. The first two tracks ‘The Stage’ and ‘Kings’ aren’t quite as melodic, but they are equally as good in their own way. It really is an EP of two halves, both equal in instrumental post-rock musical enjoyment. It really is a great release  and being so late in the year it is very welcome.

I would highly recommend adding this EP to your collection.

Band Members

John – Mark Dorough – Drums
John Ball – Bass Guitar
Michael Wilson – Electric Guitar
Nathan Spicer – Electric Guitar


Formed out of a passion for the beauty of God through sound, The Sleep Design attempts to shed light on the power of a Creator captured in rhythm. A love for jamming and a desire to stray from what pop culture has done to music inspires a band striving to mold melodies worthy of dreamers.
