2 stars Two good tracks!

I could listen to their 2011 studio album via progstreaming, and was positively impressed, I liked it a lot. So then I was looking for some info or other releases of Sleepmakeswaves, and found that their first two-song EP as free to download through Lost Children's website. So of course, I did not lose time.

This self-titled release consists only of two songs that together make almost twelve minutes of music. So if you want a slice of their music, go and take it too. For those who don't know them, they are a post-rock band with inherent power and emotional moments, worthy for the genre's fans.

"One Day You Will Teach Me to Let Go of My Fears" has an spacey atmosphere created by synths, while drums, bass and guitars make their work. Honestly I cannot help but remembering Pink Floyd's "One of These Days", and I am pretty sure that Sleepmakeswaves are aware of it, at least for the first minute and a half. Later the song becomes heavier and drastically changes, creating that convergence between heavy and soft guitars that makes the so evident post-rock sound. And it progresses and every quarter new elements are being added, if you listen carefully, you will find a cool diversity of sounds. After five minutes the intensity decreases, everything slows down and it fades out.

"By Moving the Stars I Have Found Where You were Hiding" starts with a different sound. It starts with drums and soft and repetitive guitars. Later after a minute the heavier side appears and turns the song into a new one, much more emotional and powerful. Then it slows down, and later it increases once again, so the structure is repeated. And it finishes with its calmest side.

Here we just have a taste of their music, nothing more. Better to listen to their full-length album which by the way is very recommendable. This time, two stars.

Enjoy it!
