Jocasta Sleeps

I should apologise, first of all, for the length of time it has taken me to write about this band. I recived an email and some mp3s before Christmas and the notification that they were playing live, and the intention was good, I just got caught up in other things.

Anyway, another great new band from Scotland, who also deviate from the art schol-postpunk mould that may yet eat itself in 2008, Jocasta Sleeps have some excellent tunes that have to be heard. Last night, unable to sleep in bed, I flicked through my iPod and put them on. Again. Great, great stuff.

Jocasta Sleeps -'Old Ideas.' mp3

Jocasta Sleeps -'Beautiful Dreams.' mp3

Jocasta Sleeps -'Baggy Needles.' mp3

Download these and see what you think, and let me know. If you like them, pop along here to their mySpace and make friends with them. As yet unsigned -but it shouldn't remain that way for long.

That's quite good. Love the two-guitar attack on the intro to Baggy Needles.

Hi buddy, Happy New Year! I bought myself an mp3 player as a late Christmas present, so I'll give these a listen on that. Thanks!

I saw Jocasta Sleeps at Dot to Dot this weekend and loved them. Have since been listening to their music on myspace - it's a shame I can't download it as I can't find it anywhere else.

I can't believe they don't have a label yet, they really should do!
