Sinking with M is We - An Interview

Michael Wood faz parte do Something About Vampires And Sluts e também do The Wet Teens, mas desde 2004 junta alguns amigos tão insanos quanto ele onde basicamente eles praticam uma anti música. Algo que talvez poderia ser descrito como um dark kraut lo-fi, ou algo do gênero.

O último desses devaneios lunáticos de M is We, nome que Michael atende por seu alter ego chama-se Sinking e saiu via Silber Records, gravadora conhecida no submundo da música por sua propensa alcunha de lançar pepitas de desorientação musical. Em Sinking o M is We esta mais cavernoso e lo-fi ainda, mas sugere alguns momentos mais fáceis de se absorver.

Indicado somente para iniciados.
