Night Sweats = Joy Division + Iggy Pop + The Sisters Of Mercy
It’s a shame that Night Sweats disbanded as early as they did because the music left behind is just so fucking good. The brand of new wave mixed with jazz that they were able to put together put a lot of live acts to shame and made the group stand out in a sea of electronic-mixed projects. But they’re done, so all we can do is enjoy what’s been left behind, which band member David Payne graciously put together in this unofficial debut, full-length album. This is a blend of several elements, the primary being the four tracks of the 2013 EP Red, some live material bootlegged from soundboard recordings and material recorded in studio that wasn’t quite finished. But that’s OK, because with a band of this quality and musicianship, everything sounds like it was perfected on the first take. –Sean Poorman
