A forty-five minute ambient composition from everyone's favourite left-field indie rock dude Jim O'Rourke. Sleep Like It's Winter is piece of music of uncommon warmth, wrought from synths, pedal steel and a short wave radio. It will slowly envelope you, and before you know it, you'll be hibernating in its warm embrace.

- Sleep Like It's Winter by Jim O'Rourke
Startling long-form ambient work from Jim O'Rourke that seems to dissolve time as it elegantly unravels across forty-four minutes which feel like hibernating through the cold season. An air of melancholy is slowly revealed through rich layers of tender drones, delicate keys, electronics etc. The overall effect like dwelling inside some sort of protective cocoon. It's magnificent music - makes me feel like a badger cub all snuggled up next to big furry mummy and daddy badgers. Whichever style O'Rourke turns his hand to, it's always masterful stuff (the man is a real titan) and 'Sleep Like It's Winter' is no exception. If you've been digging his Steamroom output then this Japanese CD release should hit the spot.
