Arms and Sleepers w. Live Band (US, Pelagic Records)
Mittwoch, 23. Mai 2018
Bumann & SOHN, Köln
Einlass 19Uhr, Beginn 20Uhr
Originated in the post-rock scene over a decade ago, the music of Arms and Sleepers has been transcending the narrow confines of that scene on recent releases, oscillating more between 'chilled hip-hop beats, glitching electronics and ambient progressions' (The Huffington Post) than the typical wailing delay guitars and drum crescendos. Mirza Ramic and Max Lewis have compiled an impressive discography of 26 releases in their 11 year history as Arms and Sleepers. They have collaborated with the likes of Tom Brosseau of Fat Cat Records, Serengeti of Anticon, Philip Jamieson of Caspian, and Victor Ferreira of Sun Glitters, among others. The new album 'Find The Right Place' (April 13th 2018, Pelagic Records) will be taken to stages by Mirza Lewis and a full live band in May 2018.
'The group refuses to adhere to any scene in particular, and its subdued, magical sound remains unique.' - NPR 'Crunched hip hop beats, R&B textures and slick, glistening 80s style synth pop.' - Clash 'Gorgeous soundscapes that invigorate and awaken the mind and spirit' - Impose Magazine 'Arms and Sleepers prove once again that they're making some of the most cerebrally and emotionally affecting electronic music out there.' - Earmilk
