Sleep – ‘The Clarity’

It’s hard to believe that Sleep’s seminal stank-fest ‘Jerusalem’ (later to become ‘Dopesmoker’) is 20 years old. While I can’t really imagine my 5-year old self listening to the sludgy riffs and epic 63-minute drone of that record, luckily it’s lost none of its potency over the years. Tokes of nostalgia aside, Sleep have this week released their first new single in 20 YEARS. Good news for stoner fans. The band were approached by Adult Swim for new material as part of the channel’s Singles Series and the result is ‘The Clarity’ – a sprawling ode to dank nugs in classic Sleep fashion.
