The Sleepover Series, Volume Two
"On The Sleepover Series, Volume Two, the duo attempts to 'follow the sound and stay out of the way.' As a result, the album is more about texture than melody, mood than composition, although melody and composition are both present. It’s a case of making the visible invisible so that those attempting to sleep are not distracted by the seams. It’s a soft bed, a mattress with no lumps, sheets with no folds.
The album’s ironic theme is silence...the sound one plays in order to drown out other sound. In this case, the potential sleeper wishes also to drown out anxieties and other intrusive thoughts." —A Closer Listen
Conceived as an ongoing series of hypnotic, the densely layered, ambient guitars, drive this meditative song cycle and create the perfect companion to sleep and dreaming.
“The CD series was born out of an idea I had to turn a concert into a sleepover…as the night progresses, the music would become quieter and more mellow until we’re all overtaken by sleep. I’m really excited about this series…it gives me a chance to introduce a more ambient and thematic side of my music and an opportunity to collaborate with, and support, other artists by including them on upcoming volumes.” —Marc
