Song of the Day: "Cantaloupe"

Matt Kivel might be a bit of a workaholic. He's behind this song of the day under his Sleeping Bags moniker; he also moonlights in Princeton, Kisses, Mystery Claws & Gold Room. Someone's got a case of ole Jack White syndrome, eh? 

Ok, I won't make jokes. 

All silly humour aside, this is the sort of drone, noise and layered sound that shimmers with explosive joy. This is music that's full to the brim. Minimalism has no place here. Fans of Sonic Youth, Broken Social Scene and the low moans of the Velvet Underground will find themselves smiling.

Grab a free download of the single (courtesy of the NME) and of course buy it if you like what you hear. Happy New Year too.
