I didn’t know who Akila Fields was or what he was up to before last night, but this song “Closer” by his project Sleepyvillain appeared in my Soundcloud inbox and I’m like…ok, I’m here. You got me. The obvious comparisons to both Destroyer and Toro y Moi is inevitable, and that’s perfectly fine, good company to be lumped in with. I guess Sleepyvillain’s got something called Arithmetic coming out (see the album cover there?), but I know nothing more — and I definitely want to.
Anyways, Sleepyvillain (whoever you are) I hear what you are screaming loud and clear, dude, and now my readers do, too. You are blipping on my radar for sure.
