Mood Music: Sleeping Horses - "Rarely Has Reality Needed So Much To Be Imagined"

Mood Music: Sleeping Horses - "Rarely Has Reality Needed So Much To Be Imagined"

Post-rock is a beautiful genre, especially when it leans more towards the classical end of the spectrum. It's one that really shows the depth of an artist or band's talent, since at times it takes a little more effort to keep the fascination going. This isn't a problem for new solo orchestrator James Randolph Fouty, recording under the moniker Sleeping Horses, who keeps interest piqued with his self-titled debut.

Each track is ambient magic in its own right, but one that stands out is "Rarely Has Reality Needed So Much To Be Imagined." Aside from its thought provoking title, "Rarely Has Reality..." builds up in sonic expansion without becoming too chaotic or losing its intrigue.

Give the song a listen below and check out the debut album from Sleeping Horses, out on Fluttery Records.
