"Live Review: Aug 13 2008 @ Rancho Relaxo"

Kicking off the evening was some instrumental post rock in the form of Sleep For The Nightlife. I've always loved instrumental music but admittedly, I need to be in the mood for it. What's most impressive about SFTN is the fact that they put me in the mood. Their jovial and energetic live show exudes a very engaging feel, that sucked me in immediately. Another cool thing about being an instrumental band is the fact that you can name your songs virtually anything you want, thus song titles such as I Heart Pandas and Chinese Fire Drills. Besides having all of the usual elements of modern instrumentalists, I actually heard touches of jazz fusion in their songs, which is a sound I haven't been acquainted with for years. I welcome its return and, although the band is obviously still in its developing stages, it'll be interesting to track their development in the months ahead. - It's Not the Band I Hate, It's Their Fans

"Sleep for the Nightlife"

"An impressive display of searing musicianship, adventurous post-rock, atmospheric winding instrumentals that draws on that spirit of free-jazz and prog. Triumphant, spaced-out, a cerebral journey that ebbs and flows with each head-spinning moment."
- Lonely Vagabond

"Sleep for the Nightlife is a frantic, wildly passionate quartet from Toronto. Their bold and bighearted linear fits and pensive calms are as dynamic and idiosyncratic as the four players themselves.
Likening their sound to "bicycles, temper tantrums, mandarin oranges in a light syrup, post cards, samurai, oatmeal raisin cookies and hot lady math teachers" on their Myspace, these indie rock vagrants seem to wander aimlessly through whatever genre, time signature or structure they can call home for a night. Though thickly layered and unpredictable Sleep for the Nightlife is clearly also a band that welcomes pop mentalities, fun and lightheartedness. Their upcoming release, "Human People EP", and a steady stream of supporting Canadian and US touring dates has definitely put a lot more eyes and ears onto a band that was once known to Torontonians as one of our best kept secrets." - Twin Cardinals Artist Co-operative
