This stream comes to us by way of the fantastic UK music blog, The Line of Best Fit. Sleep Party People is a dream-pop (little bit of nightmare-pop?) outfit from Denmark, driven by the song-writing of Brian Batz, the only full-time member of the project.

The video is a delightful, hazy mix of old-world folk [...]
