“We feel that music is art and no art has a monetary value (hence money has no value) so we want to give all our sounds away to the ears that so wish to house it. Although we accept donations from those who desire and can afford to do so, we feel that music is an important vehicle for social awareness and change in propelling community and creativity.”
The Sleeping Sea is speaking, that is Jarrod Welling-Cann (voice, keyboard/guitar/vibraphones), Michael Abitz (percussion expert and vibraphones) and Andrew Walker (trombone/bass/xylophone).
Inspiration comes from southern mozombique recordings (and other african tribal recordings), múm, Seabear, The Ruby Suns, El Guincho, Grizzly Bear, Peter Bjorn and John, Why?, Beach House, Shugo Tokumaru, The Concretes and many, many more… and Bad Panda loves them. Love them.Read more about The Sleeping Sea and this record at Bad Panda Records.
