Loving: Sleep - Tree Wave

This reblogged topic comes to you courtesy of gorillavsbear. Chris makes some really interesting finds, and Tree Wave is no exception. Hailing from my current home of Dallas, TX, Tree Wave are Paul Slocum and Lauren Grey. Using an “obsolete 70’s and 80’s computer and videogame gear, accompanied by female vocals,” Tree Wave make surprisingly good music. Paul, who incidentally is the creator of the Atari 2600 Synthcart, Testcart, and Homestar Runner RPG, programs the music on an Atari 2600, Commodore 64, Compaq 286, and an Epson dot matrix printer. Lauren sings. Their CD is on the way to my mailbox, and I can’t wait for it to get here. In the meantime, I enjoy listening to “Sleep.” Maybe you will too.
