David Sylvian - Sleepwalkers (2010)


sounds like a cross between Tim Hecker, Arthur Russell, Beck, and Heathen-era Bowie, which i know makes no sense. i'm not sure if it's pretentious or genius (or both) but check it out, i've never heard anything quite like it before, and i kinda love it (...except the couple spoken word tracks, STOP DOING THAT PEOPLE).

you fucking sleepwalkers, go on and sleep

  1. Sylvian's "Blemish" of 2003 is otherworldly. His use of silence is nerve-wrecking on that record.
    Sleepwalkers is class too, but not quite as hauntingly brilliant.

    The "spoken words" parts really remind me of Coil. I'm not sure if that's what they were going for, but I don't think they're as bad as you're making out :)
