We’ve recently become rather enamored with Sleep ∞ Over, the work of Texas artist Stefanie Franciotti. Her single ‘Casual Diamond’ on Hippos In Tanks from earlier in the year was a wonderfully lush and full-bodied melding of noise and melody, and her album ‘Forever’ (also due out on Hippos In Tanks this autumn) is an equally beautiful and brutal whole.
Website Altered Zones have asked her to put together the latest in their monthly mix series. The July 2011 mix is an interesting selection, with modern psychedelic offerings from the to-be-Tri-Angle-released Water Borders and LA Vampires collaboration with Ital, to the minimal wave of Oppenheimer Analysis and The Art Of Noise. Listen to the mix’s flurrying sounds and icy depths in full here.
