Monday, June 26
Just in time for your manic Monday - your road-rage and pothole-confounded commutes - comes the blood pressure-leveling album The Dawnseeker by Sleepthief.
Sleepthief is the brainchild of Justin Elswick, an attorney and music critic who creates lush, cinematic electronica very much in the vein of Delerium. The songs here are sung (beautifully) by a roster of female vocalists who are clearly comfortable working in this milieu. They include Caroline Lavelle, Kristy Thirsk, and Kirsty Hawkshaw, amongst others.
Sleepthief's The Dawnseeker will be released tomorrow in the U.S. and Canada on Neurodisc. And, of course, you can check out more sound samples on their MySpace page [here].
