TRACK | Nerve City – Sleepwalker

5/5 golden merles

Sleepwalker is an outsized, large thing built of small glories and grace.

The skeletal structure of the percussion never falters as the track progresses down the spine of the behemoth, notch by notch, clacking beyond each reliably subsequent disc.

Somehow all of this is divined by nearly clean guitar tones, a bit of tremolo and the faithful tambourine.

Before the curvature shifts, the song ends. We’re only able to recover a fragment of the fossil that was pulled from the earth.

The rest is left for us to imagine. Scales or feathers, take your pick.

Jason Boyer has exciting materials of various mediums on the big cartel and some highly promising upcoming collaborations. Also check out the full Sleepwalker EP on bandcamp.
