Sleep Vinyl, CD & tapes by Sleep at Norman Records

Sleep are a band who love weed. They have blazed; I've seen it. They've produced an extremely small quantity of music over nearly three decades, but you can hardly blame them when there's puffing and ripping to be had. Besides, they did give us Do...read more »

Om
BBC Radio 1

Om are a heavy metal band who were formed as a duo by Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius from stoner metalers, Sleep. Hakius has since left the band. They have expanded to a trio with the addition of Emil Amos and Tyler Trotter. BBC Radio 1 is a session they recorded at the legendary Maida Vale studios in spring 2019. Among the four tracks are the OM classics Gethsemine and State Of No Return.

Sleep
Volume One

Vinyl repress of Sleep’s underappreciated debut. 'Volume One' has all the weird dynamics, detuned chords and chanted mantras which came to define Sleep and the stoner-rock sound, but with added doom influence. A pretty satisfying missing link between Black Sabbath’s caveman melodrama and Sleep's later experiments with repetition and pace.

Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain

The reason people buy Sleep’s 60 minute song Dopesmoker on vinyl, is that the only alternative to flipping it halfway through is, in fact, not listening to it on vinyl. Luckily for you, Holy Mountain contains separate songs, allowing the occasional silence between the wall of energy and noise. Remastered in Full Dynamic Range, this reissue will reveal new depths to this stonerrock classic. Sleep members would later found Om and High on Fire, continuing to bring noise upon us. 

Sleep
Leagues Beneath

Described on the press release as a '17 minute plunge' this is the first new material from legendary stoners Sleep following on from their much acclaimed The Sciences LP on Third Man. Recorded as a part of a series of songs for Adult Swim this is said to be 'a right good aural experience' (our words). 

Sleep
The Sciences

Weed obsessed stoner rock legends Sleep release their first album since Dopesmoker on 4/20 as a nod to the code-term in cannabis culture and day of celebratory toking. 'The Sciences' feature six tracks of relentless, stoned and heavy psychedelic metal from chess master Al Cisneros also of Om, High on Fire axe wielder Matt Pike and Neurosis stickman Jason Roeder.

Sleep
The Clarity

New music from stoner-metal overlords Sleep! The Clarity was recorded in 2009, a decade after previous release Dopesmoker and seven years before now. Let no-one accuse Sleep of being in a hurry. The Clarity is a thick and chewy slab of sludge, presented on a single side of vinyl, with the other being artfully etched. 12” on Southern Lord.

Sleep
Dopesmoker

Got to keep the lads in smoking paraphernalia. This must get re-issued at least once a year (around the same number of times the members of Sleep actually get out of bed in fact). This is a stone cold stoner rock classic though. It invented the genre pretty much... full of sludging riffs, grumbling bass, cannabis rhythms.
