Ahhhh, it’s time to relax and you know what that means….
“A glass of wine, your favorite easy chair…” and an unexpected yet gratifying demo from Justin Fullam who despite all of the art, music and work projects he’s currently involved with, found the time to create something a bit more laid back.
Justin teamed up with recording engineer Kevin Carafa in his apartment to record these four dreamy cuts appropriately titled, “Songs to Help You Sleep ,” under the alias Hawkins. These four relaxing numbers are a vast departure from the Killed by the Bull sound that Justin has been known for, for the greater part of the 2000’s. Without knowing, you would think a totally different person was behind these tracks- not to say that’s a bad thing at all, just…well…different and different is good.
Justin presents a refreshing/quiet sound in this session and cites Mazzy Star as one of his main influences describing the project as acoustic dream-pop/sleep music. Add a minimal drum-kit and these songs could have very well been on Low’s “If I could Live in Hope,” an essential slow-core record from the early 90’s.
“…So go on and indulge yourself, that’s right- kick off your shoes, put your feet up…download Hawkins– Songs to Help You Sleep for free HERE, lean back and just enjoy the melodies. After all, music soothes even the savage beast.”
