the second album by musicforvoyeurs, The Long Sleep picks up from the wintery gloom of before, an introspective trap of despair and not wanting to wake up when depression hits hard. it is the sound of giving up on life but without the courage, a coward’s lament to a failed existence. musicforvoyeurs’ debut album was acclaimed as “fantastic opiate opera… delightfully maudlin…. a masterclass in ambient atmospherics and moody intoxication ” and The Long Sleep drifts along with Harold Budd and Bill Conti, Goldmund and Simon Gallup’s straggling bass. The Long Sleep is religion and pianos, violins, mountain stags and dawn birds, the scratch of a zither and crying babies.
