stream new LP ‘Sleepless’ by Immersion (Colin Newman/Malka Spigel)


Colin Newman (of Wire) and Malka Spigel (of Minimal Compact), who have more than a few musical projects together, have recorded as duo Immersion since the ’90s, and their chilled-out grooves still bares a bit of that decade’s sound. The 10 instrumentals on new album Sleepless draw you in via hypnotic guitar-lines, warm synth drones, and understated, jazzy drumming. There are motorik Neu!-style workouts (“Propulsoid” which features drumming by SAVAK/Holy Fuck’s Matt Schulz), playful, bouncy numbers (“Hovertron”), and alien terraform ambience (“Sleepless”), all of which feel of a whole. A stream of the entire record premieres in this post and you can listen below.

Immersion will be on tour this summer, with Schulz on drums for most of the dates, and theyll play NYC’s Rough Trade on July 14 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
