From Adult Swim’s singles series, hear the first song in 20 years from stoner-metal band Sleep

Sleep was hilariously cagey in a very brief email exchange with me. One of the bits up there, but also…

It would be impossible to describe any new material from Sleep that does not yet exist. There is no preconceived idea of what the new material should be. It would be an amalgamated effort of decades of riff immersion.
