Ganglians - "Sleep"

We've heard "Jungle." Now, today, we get another tasty psychedelic nugget from the Ganglians' forthcoming double LP Still Living in "Sleep." Unlike the typically hazy and ambient tracks about nabbing shuteye, "Sleep" commands serious force. Built around a twinkling and starry-eyed keyboard riff, "Sleep" quickly interrupts its dreamy tone with heavy smacks of bass drum, crashing cymbals, and surges of darkly-toned electric guitar that feel akin to being doused with a bucket of cold water mid nap. One of the more intriguing moments of the song is the coda which commences around the three-and-a-half minute mark with a rich vocal harmony led by Ryan Grubbs, followed by a well-timed key change. The track is one of Ganglian's most dynamic to date and an exciting precursor to one of Everybody Taste's most anticipated albums of 2011.

Still Living is out August 23rd. Pre-order it now via Lefse.
