Turn Your Head Around

Porcelain Raft “Put Me To Sleep”

There’s a moment just after the first chorus of this song when the sound of the track sort of wobbles, as if the entire track has been momentarily thrown off register. I really like this – there’s a lot of good sonic details here, but I enjoy the way this deliberate interruption makes it so that the song’s otherwise static rhythm isn’t quite as lulling as it could be. After that point, you’re just sorta waiting for other curveballs, with subverts the hazy, insomniac tone of the piece. Hearing a guy plead for sleep is a lot more poignant when the music accurately conveys the sound of being exhausted but too alert to slip into a dream state.

Buy it from Amazon.
