The Big Sleep & ATRINA @ BAR for FREE!
Psychedelic Post-Rockers The Big Sleep are coming to BAR this Wednesday, February 1st, and it ain't cost you ONE CENT. Opening for them is the visceral and always impressive ATRINA, one of CT's most skilled and loved bands.
Here is the info breakdown:
THE BIG SLEEP
Formed in 2003, the band's discography includes the self-released EP You Today, Me Tomorrow, the full-length Son Of The Tiger LP (released in late 2006), and the full-length album Sleep Forever (released in 2008). Having drawn comparisons to fellow New Yorkers Sonic Youth, The Big Sleep's sound deviates from that of more recently formed contemporaries. Often without vocals, The Big Sleep's songs are for the most part instrumentals leaning towards post-rock or shoegaze, however often with a psychedelic feel hearkening back to classic rock such as Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath.
In fall 2011, The Big Sleep performed at CMJ Music Marathon and released “Ace”, the single off of their new album Nature Experiments. Nature Experiments will be released on January 31, 2012.
I am a big fan of how Dan Barry of The Hartford Advocate explains ATRINA:
"...Atrina force you to meet them with openness and wonderment... the feel of their music is iconic... marked by turbulent riffs in angular time signatures... lyrics evacuate the voice... leaving us with just the sound itself, a husk of something communicated... chilling, morbid, and delicious"
- Dan Barry (Hartford Advocate)
