After three years of hiatus-era silence, NYC aughts-stalwarts the Big Sleep return with their third full-length Nature Experiments, due early next year on Frenchkiss. The project’s lineup has condensed and coalesced around principal pair Sonya Balchandani and Danny Barria, who return on vocals/bass and guitars, respectively, with some GarageBand and other fill-ins for where the drums once lived. “Ace” is #1 from the LP, and it’s a honed take on their effects-laden riff/shoegaze pop sound; think Metric propelled by Secret Machines, think NYC aughts, download below:
