“Where my heart is, there’s never a home.”

“Vapour” by Vancouver Sleep Clinic | “I just cannot not share this,” Dexter told me when he emailed in this song three weeks ago (yep, I have a bit of a backlog, and I’m sorry) and after listening… I don’t get why he felt that way. Vancouver Sleep Clinic is, according to their Facebook page, “for lovers of Bon Iver and James Blake”, which leads me to ask, “why would I want to listen to a group who sounds very much like them, and not to the actual ones?” Yes, I know I’m sounding pretty mean to these Brisbane-based folk. To their credit, their sound is distilled and smooth, Tim Bettinson’s voice acting more as an instrument than the more distinct role vocals usually do. But yeah, a part of me still thinks this sounds too much like their aforementioned influences. Long way to go, but I don’t think it’s my thing. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
