(soft) Thunder Power

Here's a satisfying slice of Nebraska served up in the form of a folk-rocker from the six-some Thunder Power. It's off of a five track, split EP titled Friend Ships that the group just released along with the very distant London based artist Alessi's Ark. The three contributions from the group are served up with a dreamy, winsome air that's nice and light on the ears and occasional kicks up a gear or two, but still retains an earthiness about it. The track below, Sleep, Not Violence, is the middle cut from the EP and strums along for about two and half minutes before almost reinventing itself into something new for the last two minutes or so before drifting back to something akin to its original form. Listen, enjoy.
