DC9 Live at El Sibil, Ep. 12: Sleep Whale

It's not that any of the guys in 

Sleep Whale

 have something against their parents--to hear them tell it, by last year

they were just plain over their old moniker

. Especially after touring through Europe, where their old name, mom, had a way of coming out as "mum."

Since 2009's Houseboat, the Denton-based ambient electro-instrumental act says it's been fine-tuning its live act when they all get together rather than write much new material--just jamming, really. And, as they told us during last week's taping, they're likely to be taking a little time off to grow each of their individual projects: Northern, Abacus, Melting Season and Sunnybrook.

Which is all for the best in the end for Sleep Whale, too, they say--better to evolve with their individual interests than to wallow in the same old thing.

As an added bonus, the band gave the go-ahead for us to pass make the audio from last week's performance
available for you to download here

(with uncut versions of each track from the video above).

Be sure to give the above clip a watch and the sound file a listen. Then maybe come on over to tonight's taping at El Sibil (122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff) at 8 p.m. and watch us tape the stars of next week's installment...
