Arms & Sleepers

post-rock // cinematic ambient

The cinematic aural experience that post-rock can create is really quite unique to the genre. Arms and Sleepers have previously toured with Aurgasm favorite, The American Dollar, but they were spotted back when I went to an event called Split/Signal. There, bands performed live, providing score to silent short films. Unquestionably, Arms and Sleepers’ performance was the most stunning. The songs below come from their older work; vocals fans may enjoy their newest release, Matador.

Equally divine in both fore and background listening.

    Love these guys. I’ve seen them perform on three different occasions. First time I saw them was completely unexpected in Portland, ME opening for El Ten Eleven. Their music is fantastic for any season and any mood…it makes everything better. Cool that you’re featuring them here. This is a cool site!

  2. Mine :

    Reminds me somewhat of Telefon Tel Aviv. Love these tracks.

  3. Philip :

    People open for El Ten Eleven?

  4. Garymon :

    You can get 9 of their EPs for $20 at their personal store. Much better than anywhere else I looked.

  5. Garymon :

    If 4,000 people “Like” their FB page before the end of 2010 they will release a free EP. They can be found here:
