the big sleep

so i've been on a record purchasing kick as of late, it seems i can't go to a record store and not drop $100. weak. but after reading a small review of the big sleep's debut 'son of the tiger' and then forgetting everything about what i'd read except that it was put out by frenchkiss records (the hold steady, thunderbirds are now!, les savy fav), i must say that i am happy that i buy records on a whim like this, thinking 'hey i remember that, what about it i don't know, but i think i remember that i would like that... hmmm'. combining neo-psychedelic a la the verve and various drone and shoegazer influences, this record makes for a sweet trip down headswirl lane. most of the tracks on the album are instrumentals, with the bass player/chick singing on some of the tunes. check it out.

the big sleep - s.k.b.

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
