“Bad Blod,” our second preview from The Big Sleep’s soon to be released, Sleep Forever, finds the band further solidifying their move from crushing, post-rock to crushing rock. With bassist, Sonya Blchandan, taking the lead, the vocals are less pronounced and less dynamic than when guitarist Danny Barria is out front (as on the previously blogged “Pinkies”), placing the emphasis back on the crushing, post-rock. Admittedly, there isn’t really much of a difference between The Big Sleep rocking out and The Big Sleep post-rocking out, as either way you get a big, satisfying, fuzzy storm of sound.
