ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
notes on "so why so silent"

i will try to describe what was going on in my head at the time of recording this album...
i set out to make a record that didn't sound like anything else in my record collection...something that wasn't influenced by radio, mtv, hollywood, whatever...something cool...something to listen to on a rainy day...by yourself maybe...maybe when you are sad...twisted...insane...mental...lonely...maybe something to make you feel artistic...inspired...whatever...something out there...and this record is the result of that...

we have gotten some good feedback...some say it sounds like a David Lynch film...i kinda think it does too...someone said that it is a good record to get high to...to have sex to...to space out to...to fall asleep to...probably..."they" have said maybe Pink Floyd, Tones On Tail, My Bloody Valentine...maybe Underworld or Slowdive sometimes...

what i think...the album is pretty mellow...interweaving guitars and synth...pulsing electronic drums...clouds...fairly subdued vocals...kinda blue...ebow...kinda grey...delay...sometimes purple...sometimes chaos...sometimes confusion...sometimes darkness...

i should be quiet now...give the clips a listen...if you like what you hear check out our website for more music as well as lots of cool photo's of people you may have heard of as well as some you more than likely haven't...

thanks for checking us out.

skum of skumlove

dark raw and beautifully grim
i was one of the first to receive this album and and have to say i loved it!!!!!!!! it's very differant from the music i make but i identify with it. its sound is dark and brilliant. it feasts on your illusions createing visions of forrests in rain or a dark corridor with peering eyes stabbing you in the dark! this album makes hairs stand on end then brings you to a pure virginal eroticism like an angel being raped in the night.
i totally recommend this album..........

John Robert Sanborn

Very interesting music with dark ambience and whispy vocals.
I'm very pleased with this CD. The dark, atmospheric whispy vocals add quite a lot to these well-written songs.

Brian Pearson


This is a perfect combination of swirling other-worldly electronics, hypnotic chill beats, expressive electric guitar, and occasional wispy-but-pleasant vocals. The songwriting is solid: each piece is distinctive and interesting, with nice melodies. Nice production, too: lots of attention to detail, and the sound has the spaciousness and clarity this kind of reverb-laden music needs.

This is a subtle, intricate, beautiful album. Music to get lost in.

Sebastian Sandoval

This is my best music purchase in years
I just purchased this CD by Sleeping Favor on a whim as it was the only album that came up after doing a search for bands similar to Tones on Tail, one of the most influential and important quasi-goth bands ever to exist. I buy tons and tons of music online and I have never had the desire to be that sex deprived internet dork who writes reviews of the music they buy...until now. Seeing as no one else has written about them, which leads me to believe no one else knows about them, I felt I had an obligation to praise this band. I am now on a mission from God to diffuse the news that this band has broken the mold and created something bold, challenging, and new. I have ingested copious amounts of drugs in my life and have ingested an even greater amount of music but I have never gotten high off of just music alone until I listened to this album. For the entirety of this album I felt my consciousness being manipulated simply by the music itself. Every song is beautiful and there are litterings of early Cure chorus drenched guitars, Peter Hook basslines, My Bloody Valentine distorted ambience, Massive Attack plasticized drums, textured synths, and ethereal vocals that sound like they are submerged just below an icy water's surface. The production is probably the best I've heard on an independent album for a long, long, time...possibly ever. Overall this was a most suprising buy...I am now an addicted fan and I'm waiting for their next album to be released which is thankfully already being recorded now.
