It's been a bit since we last heard from Sleep ∞ Over's Stefanie Franciotti, but judging from the sound of her new single, she's been using her time out of the spotlight to get really specific about texture. "Rooftop" crackles and shivers like something played off a half-broken, Victorian phonograph; between the music box notes and her nursery-ready vocals, it strikes that perfect horror movie balance between comfort and ominousness, even if it eventually spirals into a sinewy saxophone dirge. The digital 7" drops via Hippos In Tanks tomorrow, and it's got a pretty enchanting Vashti Bunyan cover of a b-side. (via Gorilla vs. Bear)
