sleep ∞ over - Casual Diamond (Laurel Halo Mix)

Utterly enchanting pop music from Austin TX's Sleep ∞ Over, readied with a remix from ethereal electronic auteur, Laurel Halo. That suggestively evocative name belongs to Stefanie Franciotta who formed the group only a year ago. Her first rough demos, made on a handheld recorder with former band members Christa Palazzolo and Sarah Brown, caught the attentions of Night People who released their eponymous debut, with a few of those tracks landing on a 7" for Light Lodge and a new batch for Forest Family (get hunting!). Since then, Stefanie has shed her bandmates and the gently giddy 'Casual Diamond' is her most recent material. Her knowingly Pot-pourried pop recalls the essence of late '80s/early '90s pop, but safely steered with an acknowledgement of 4AD classics, giving her guilty pleasures a poignant innocence which is so much more distinctive than the polyester-saturated soup of lo-fi pop she emerged from. Laurel Halo is the perfect candidate to rework material of this calibre, expanding an already articulate electronic vocabulary with something crossing spatialized 2-step, shoegaze and mid '90s UK electronica like a threadbare quilt sheltering her dreamspace behind the sofa. Another impressive drop from Hippos in Tanks - Highly recommended!
