Inspired and the Sleep

This one comes to you from Max Greenhalgh, who has kindly sent me his single "While We're Young" from his album Teenager, which was released earlier this summer for his "revolving musical project" called Inspired and the Sleep. Greenhalgh draws a lot of inspiration from a recent rise in bliss beat, which has recently been shown appreciation with such releases as w h o k i l l by the's kind of like a crazy mix of freak folk, lo-fi, and maybe even some hip-hop influence.  When I first listened to "While We're Young", the band Rafter also came to mind, another group whose melodies seem so loosely tied that the songs almost sound like improvisation.  Greenhalgh seems to follow suit, allowing his desire to experiment with different sounds and instruments mix with a certain playfulness.  Similar to the bands like tUnE-yArDs and Rafter, "While We're Young" is driven by catchy loops which continue to layer upon themselves.  Take a listen below, where you can also snag it for free!
