- Floating by Sleep Party People
8/10 Mike Staff review, 07 August 2014
I've not come across Sleep Party People before but this is in fact the second album from the project, spearheaded by Denmark's Brian Batz and inspired by Boards of Canada, Erik Satie and David Lynch.
'Floating' begins in relatively straightforward fashion, with the opening couple of tracks providing a pleasant blend of cavernous low-key dreampop wibble and blurry modern synthpop cool, but things aren't quite what they seem, and things start getting weirder as the album progresses.
'In Another World' mixes a big beat drum loop with the kind of sinewy spook-pop the aforementioned Lynch achieves on his own records, all tractor-beam synth throbs, haunted house piano and moodily descending strings, while 'Death Is The Future' is a grittily robotic '80s movie synth and guitar strut before 'I See The Sun, Harold' brings us some meditative new age drones. Towards the end things get a bit epic and earnest but overall it's a record full of ideas with a nice balance between its dreamy and nightmarish elements.
