Minimalist-avant-fok-pop from Amy Hill (Terry, Primo, Constant Mongrel) and Al Montfort (Terry, Eastlink, Total Control etc). Two highly appreciated members of our music-world return with a sophomore album that's both homely, interesting, experimental, full of pop sensibilities but also brushes upon an undefined realm of music. It's easy enough here to draw links back to previous projects from these two, Snake's experimental leanings and Sleepless Nights country tunes for example, and while it's two familiar voices you may know and love, there's a creative nucleus unique to this project. Sleeper & Snake's music is almost like a current-day, non-institutionally aligned version of the 'friendly avant-garde' you'd hear reissued on the Unseen Worlds label ("Blue" Gene Tyranny, Elodie Lauten, Dickie Landry), or the sophisticated private press gems you'd be exposed to via Efficient Space Records. Their spirit animal could well be Arthur Russell in a cowboy hat. The album ebbs between sound-piece and pop-tune, and overall reminds me of the cult-classic-cassette by Gareth Williams & Mary Currie - Flaming Tunes, the oh-too-brief discography of Karen Marks and The Kiwi Animal. Special stuff! - Nic
