Arms and Sleepers & The American Dollar - From The Inland Sea

Arms and Sleepers is Max Lewis (Boston, MA) and Mirza Ramic (Portland, ME). The band was formed in 2006 and has since released a handful of albums and EPs. Arms and Sleepers have extensively toured North America, Europe, and the UK. Upcoming releases include “Matador” (2nd full-length) and “From The Inland Sea” (split with The American Dollar)

Started by high school friends John Emanuele and Richard Cupolo from Queens, NY in 2005, The American Dollar creates cinematic, electronica-tinged instrumental rock. The duo fuses processed drums, spacious keyboards and powerful organ swells with electric guitar and bass, creating deep sonic textures while maintaining the passion and energy of a live band. The swirling soundscapes build and swell, punctuated by glitchy beats, breathing and expanding into crashing guitars and soaring leads: precisely constructed symphonies for a new era.

This is my favorite Arms and Sleepers release, a split with The American Dollar. Delicious Trip Hop with Ambient and Post-Rock influence and some nice Instrumental Post-Rock for you. Enjoy it!
