SLEEPING IN THE AVIARY
LIVE ON DAYTROTTERNew album this fall on Science of Sound Records
Yesterday Sleeping in the Aviary's live session with Daytrotter was featured ondaytrotter.com.
Recorded at the Daytrotter studio in Rock Island, IL, their four-song session took about two hours to record. As usual with the great site of Daytrotter, their live recording process captures the artist as they are and nothing else.
Sleeping in the Aviary agrees that, “these songs are them as they are on that particular day, on that particular tour – dirty and alive" (Sean Moeller,Daytrotter.com).
The aviary is not even close to the only place where the airy and pop-smart Minneapolis band Sleeping In The Aviary takes us on its latest record, "Great Vacation!" We are thrust into what seems like a combination dream world of Jacques Cousteau, Neil Armstrong and the Grizzly Man, where there's an unswerving attraction to following the heart wherever the heart wants to set course for....
...There's an unabashed quality of exploding hearts and uncontrollable urges that runs through each Sleeping In The Aviary song. The feeling of seeing and thinking about love is almost enough because if the main characters involved actually caught it - somewhere outside the realm of these fantasy worlds - we're not certain that they'd know what to do with it. It could be a really tricky situation.
These are the early experiences with understanding the debilitating nature of this beastly sensation that takes a good many men and women to their graves. - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter.com
