ALBUM OF THE WEEK: ELECTRIC PRESIDENT “SLEEP WELL” June 6, 2008

the latest cd from Electric President (morr music) is here… and it’s brilliant. their debut from a couple of years ago was one of my favorite releases of 2006… but it had its faults. tracks like “good morning, hypocrite” were absolute masterpieces of songwriting and programming… but there were moments on that album that fell into a lot of electronic music cliches.

“sleep well”, as is the trend with many bands lately, sheds some of the “electronica” for a more rocky and acoustic production. not that the electronics aren’t there, but the real drums, guitars and instrumentation definitely take the forefront and do so in a slightly more mellow and melancholy way which helps make the album sound more mature and solid.

i may like it better than the first.. but only time will tell that. at any rate, it’s a fantastic album… going to be on repeat for a while.
