sleepmakeswaves release second album ‘Love of Cartography’
on 1 September 2014 on Bird’s Robe Records
Love Of Cartography is the second album from Sydney ambient/melodic post-rockers sleepmakeswaves. ‘Love of Cartography’ is out September 1st through Bird’s Robe Records
Following their ARIA-nominated debut …and so we destroyed everything, the band have created their most epic, intricate and powerful record to date. Love Of Cartography showcases their dynamic and energetic approach to modern post-rock, whilst retaining their signature melodic hooks.
With a series of memorable and thundering sequences, the album presents the band’s continued desire to map new creative directions within an instrumental rock framework.
The band’s heavy touring schedule of the past three years (sharing stages with 65daysofstatic, Karnivool & Russian Circles) has honed their powerful live energy, which has been captured impressively on the album.
Recorded in Byron Bay at Studio 301 with producer Nick DiDia (Karnivool, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Powderfinger, Rage Against The Machine), the album’s 10 tracks range from the epic bombast of ‘Perfect Detonator’ to the delicate and subtle electronic flourishes of ‘A Little Spark.’
