Sleep Of Reason

untitled

Today see’s the release of the debut full length ‘Sleep Of Reason’ by Raffertie on Ninja Tune. Apparently inspired by the artist otherwise known as Benjamin Stefanski’s ‘childhood memories in a British seaside town, its faded grandeur and ageing population’ that were the cause of some musings on the subject of mortality. He says that ‘parts of this album are about letting go of the worry of when something might happen, and instead embracing now’, and the thirteen track collection definitely benefits from being digested as a whole body of work, in order to fully embrace the flow, themes and textures involved. It follows his earlier four-track ‘Build Me Up’ EP, for which Raffertie collaborated with prolific film director Vincent Haycock for a very engaging short film that accompanies the title track, and depicts three brothers from South Central, Los Angeles.
