Arms and Sleepers
Words can hardly describe what I heard last night on my first listen to Arms and Sleepers' "Butterflycatcher" while on Blip.fm. The track off of their Black Paris 86 album has a somber feel to it until an odd middle section which emphasizes horns picks it up for a bit. After that section, some light vocals go delicately with the constant horn crescendos/decrescendos. The sections are separated by a snare SNAP which I can only interpret to be the butterfly being caught with a net.
The title track from the same album is similar in shape and scope. All of their tracks would seemingly produce a great film noir soundtrack.
Their recently released 5 song EP "The Motorist" is available at their Blogspot account/store for only $7. If you'd like to help contribute to our site, purchase Black Paris 86 at our Amazon store. I would highly recommend you check out Arms and Sleepers and take some time to sit down and take every sound in while listening. Enjoy!
