Sleeping At Last
For a short time, Sleeping At Last has released a sampler to NoiseTrade, featuring a new live version of “Turning Page”, Sleeping At Last’s contribution to the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I soundtrack. Despite it’s source, though, it’s a gorgeous, simple love song, and well worth getting. Also included are a handful of standout tracks from earlier Sleeping At Last albums the Yearbook, Storyboards, and Keep No Score.
Sleeping At Last has been one of my favorite bands for a long time; if you’ve never listened to them before, please do! The music really is marvelous, and the lyrics are extraordinary. Enjoy!
Huge free music news today from Beehave.fr – they have just unveiled Another Way to Fight – Vol. 3, which, if I’m not mistaken, is the biggest sampler of the year so far. It features 65 different songs, from all sorts of artists, from War of Ages to JJ Heller and just about every style in between. It’s insane, and awesome. I can’t wait to listen. Check it out!
Note: Don’t speak French? No worries – try this link instead.
Head’s up! Sleeping At Last is giving away their entire Storyboards album for free through NoiseTrade for 48 hours. The giveaway started first thing this morning (literally, 12:01 AM) and will end directly before midnight tomorrow.
I’m listening to the album as I write this, and I’m really enjoying it. Enjoy!
Not long ago, the band Sleeping at Last gave fans an opportunity of a lifetime – to appear in a Sleeping at Last song. All the band asked was that fans would send in short clips of themselves singing a single A# note, which were later compiled into a internet choir of sorts for an acoustic version of Sleeping at Last’s song “All This To Say”. The band had had over 70 people answer the call, including myself, and despite that, it still sounds downright amazing.
Here’s a note from the band explaining the details and how to download the new version of the song for free:
“As you may already know, we recently asked folks to sing and record an “A#” note and send it to us, to be used in a new version of our song “All This To Say.” We got TONS of wonderful recordings sent to us from all over the world and all of ‘em were lovely! We were pleasantly surprised to hear so much “choir” talent in our listeners! Nice work, guys! Thanks so much to those of you that participated!
We’re excited to announce that as of right NOW, this exclusive version of “All This To Say” is available as a FREE* download for everyone!

The song really does sound nice, and I know I’m biased, but I think it’s definitely worth getting.
Free music today from Sleeping at Last. The band recently released a 6-song sampler through NoiseTrade, featuring three songs from Keep No Score (“Careful Hands, “Umbrellas”, and “Quicksand”) and three from the group’s latest, Storyboards (“Porcelain”, “Chandeliers”, and “Birdcage Religion”). If you’ve never heard Sleeping at Last, be prepared for some very different, very artistic, music. For me, I have to be in a certain mode to really enjoy the band. Maybe that’s true of you, and maybe it isn’t, either way though, they’re worth at least a listen.
You know what else is worth checking out? The band’s music videos for “Green Screens”. It’s different, but I think it shows what Sleeping at Last is really like. Enjoy!
