james smith Impressive and refined, this transcends beat music and achieves real musicality. Modern and old school simultaneously. Incredibly well chosen sampling- the pieces seem composed rather than produced. So much soul. A mature work, this is an album for adults with quality taste that demand more than bangers and drops. Favorite track: Killshot (feat. Airøspace).

Emils Vilcans Hovering at the instrumental hip-hop stop a tad longer, Life is Everywhere is a mesmerizing voice of the out-of-sight suburbia; the most ambitious chapter from the duo to date.

  • 1xLP (lathe cut)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    _____________________________________________________________

    1xLP (lathe cut) - limited to 17 copies, features alternate cover

    High quality lathe cut records, hand-made one by one and hand-numbered. Since there is more flexibility in altering records with this process, the full album fits on a single LP unlike the pressed 2xLP release.

    WARNING: Some record players (mostly newer, cheaper models) automatically won't play the record past the center label area, which for this lathe cut vinyl will be filled with audio since entire Side A and Side B are used to fit the full length of the album. So a warning that if you own a newer, cheaper record player, the full length of each side may not play since your record player will automatically stop once the needle reaches the center label area. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch: hello@armsandsleepers.com.

    Released by dear friends at SlyVinyl Selects (www.slyvinyl.com).

    Includes a bonus track available only on LP/CD/Cassette formats.

LIFE IS EVERYWHERE :: the new album from Arms and Sleepers

Available as 2xLP (standard black, translucent w/ black smoke) + 1xLP (lathe cut) + CD + Cassette + Digital

Inspired by real-life events from Chicago’s South Side and its vibrant youth, Arms and Sleepers’ new album LIFE IS EVERYWHERE highlights the necessity of compassion and kindness in this lonely and uncertain digital age, affirming the true purpose of art in our world. Co-produced by Sun Glitters and featuring appearances from acclaimed MC Serengeti and Airøspace, LIFE IS EVERYWHERE enters a new realm of creativity as it expands on the melodies of their previous work but with a darker and more reflective quality.

In recent interviews, Mirza Ramic (half of the duo) emphasized the importance of having the courage to live in truth because great change begins with ourselves, which is the only reality we can control, noting that, ‘the most practical thing I can contribute to any kind of change is to better myself, and hopefully that can create positive side-effects for the world around me.’

'Arms and Sleepers experiments more with electronics and beats than Morcheeba or Portishead ever did... the group refuses to adhere to any scene in particular, and its subdued, magical sound remains unique.'
― NPR

‘...moving from the trippy, cinematic blends that defined their earlier work to ’90s-influenced instrumental hip-hop, Life Is Everywhere might be the group’s most ambitious project to date.’
― Bandcamp

'Accurately described as J Dilla meets Tycho, chilled hip-hop beats, glitching electronics and ambient progressions.'
― The Huffington Post
