Tree Wave – Sleep


And Little Big Adventure’s yang could well be Dallas’s Tree Wave. Well it’s certainly louder and more aggressive but reading their bio it seems that the music they make comes from, presumably soundcard enhanced, computers made in the 1970’s – something that would probably sit quite easily with LBA. ‘Sleep’ is Tree Wave’s contribution to the SXSW 2008 mp3 fest and a sparkling ditty it is too even if it is taken from a release, the ‘Cabana’ EP, which dates back to 2004. ‘Sleep’ is the ingenious love child of Orbital’s ‘Style’ and the frothy pronouncements of Stereolab’s Lætitia Sadier. In truth it is Lauren Gray that provides the vocals and you’ve got to applaud her generosity along with that other Tree Waver Paul Slocum for dropping the code to a synthesiser program for the Commodore 64 on the aforementioned ‘Cabana’ release. It has the makings of a great story and could even spawn a new generation of (Donkey) kongwriters. KD
