ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Daysleepers theory on making music has always been to make the most beautiful, dreamy, textured sounds as possible. Music that all blends together into one thick wall of sound. The vocals subtly drift in and out of thick waves of guitar sounds, and synth backdrops. The focus is always on the melody and beauty of voice and sound. Like the pioneers of shoegaze music Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Lush....The Daysleepers continue to carry on the sounds of those bands very closely while adding in some new updated elements. The whole idea behind the music is to make great shoegaze music available to fans of the genre who miss the previous bands mentioned that sadly no longer exist. Music this beautiful should not disappear, especially when there are so many people out there that still want to hear it. If you love Shoegaze, Dream Pop, or Noise Rock, check out The Daysleepers, "Hide Your Eyes" E.P. you will not be disappointed.
"Threnody" the opening track starts very minimal and builds to a giant crescendo of gorgeous alien sounds. "Mesmerize" recalls the light and beautiful sound of The Cocteau Twins in their prime. "Stars on Fire" a nine minute wash of drifting lazy guitars, and reverbed vocals take us back to The Cure's "Disintegration" album. "Loved By The Sun" shows a dark droning side of the band, leading into very dark, almost gothic soundscapes. "Big Sleep" the final track, is a pretty song that boasts the most beautiful vocals on the E.P. Shoegazers do not miss out on this new edition to the genre! Keep on dreaming....NOTE: ALMOST OUT OF PRINT GET IT WHILE YOU CAN!!!

Shoegaze goes on forever !
Thank god for shoegazers like The Daysleepers. Absolutely amazing Wall-Of-Sound-Dreampop. Five songs that keep you far away from the ordinary world.

Julian

Amazing CD for fans of Slowdive
This is an amazing cd! It's the best 'modern' shoegaze I've come across yet and should appeal to anyone that likes Slowdive. Definitely pick this up.

Alex

El ethereal-shoegazer está de vuelta !
Me recuerda a Slowdive y Cocteau Twins, y muy probablemente ésas sean su influencias. Un gran llamado a los grandes fanáticos del shoegaze ethereal noventero....está de vuelta ! Seguramente Daysleepers será una de las bandas más importantes en este genéro en los soguientes años. Increíble CD, para cortarte las venarias....

The best cd of 2006 for me, I play it all day and night.
Stars on Fire and Big Sleep are my favorites.
Can't wait for the next cd.:D

Giselle

Best newer shoegaze band I've heard, to date!
This CD harkens to nights listening to Slowdive, The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Jesus and Mary Chain....in short, all the best of Shoegaze and Ethereal combined!! Oh, and with some Radiohead thrown in, for good measure. :)

Amazing
The best shoegaze-music I heard since the "Nowhere"-album by Ride in 1990.
Heavenly, melodic, timeless....
Waiting for more !

Shoegazing Lives With Hide Your Eyes!
Hide Your Eyes is excellent and I highly recommend this disc to any fan of shoegazing! Light some candles, turn the lights off, and drift away to The Daysleepers, Hide Your Eyes. You won't be dissapointed!

keala

phenomenal
I got the cd and I love it! It is one of the best that I have heard in a long time, and I can't stop listening to it. I will be getting more albums by this artist in the near future. The sound is just so textured and ethereal. I like how the vocals don't detract from the effect of the music; the mood of each song is a perfect symbiosis of all of its constituents.
