Song of the Day - December 26, 2005

Wintersleep are from Halifax and they specialize in dark, atmospheric music. I suppose you could call it mood music from the melancholy, depressed, sun starved northern climate denizens. They have attained a bit of notoriety, especially in Canada, where they have opened for Pearl Jam. The track "Sore" borrows from Neil Young with its acoustic guitars and mellow feeling, but it is also uniquely Wintersleep. Lead singer Paul Murphy exhibits great emotion by varying the dynamics and intensity of his voice from a barely audible whisper to practically shouted lyrics, which are matched by the rest of the band.
