Sleepytime Mixtape Project: 9 & 10

I've gotten a lot of positive comments on the Sleepytime Mixtape Project so far and I'm really glad you guys are digging it, it's been pretty fun so far picking and choosing. Hope you liked songs 7 and 8 from this past weekend, I went through A LOT of trouble to finally get that post up. Also, if you guys have any favorite "sleepytime" songs, go ahead and post them in the comments, I'd love to see what songs you guys pick. Here are today's songs.

9. [MP3]: Azure Ray :: Rise
My play count on iTunes for this song is 56 for a reason. This song puts you in a sort of in limbo state where you're sort of awake, but kind of alseep at the same time. The guitar in the background is what does it, I think. The way it doesn't over power anything else but just sort of stays back strumming back and forth failry fast, but low enough that it feels just like a warm buzzing. This one WILL put you to sleep, but in a good way.

10. [MP3]: At The Drive-In :: 198d
This is another one of the "sleepytime" songs that i prefer, the one that won't exacty put you to sleep, but is pefect for laying in bed and closing your eyes and listening. To say this song is emotionally affecting would be an understatement. Cedric's vocals are crushing and they never fail to tear me up inside, even to this day. When he wails "walk away / burning hearts etched in coal / at the first showing" I die a little, and that keyboard lead-in is still haunting. Sure, you could say "ew, they're emo aren't they," but that would make you ignorant, because everything they ever wrote was brilliant, regardless of what labels people threw at them.
