SPIN Features Sleeping States / Holopaw LGBT Pride Release  

Posted at 8:01 am


The fine folks of SPIN Magazine featured Sleeping States and Holopaw in a phenomenal feature on the two acts’ new split 12″ LGBT pride release (45 RPM, pink vinyl). Both acts are fronted by openly gay men (John Orth with Paw and Markland Starkie with SS). See more below.

Excerpt from SPIN feature: 

“The double-billed treat is currently available in digital and pink vinyl formats (via Misra). A portion of proceeds from album sales will go toward the Point Foundation, an organization that provides support to LGBTQ students. For a preview of the collection, below hear Sleeping States’ achingly tuneful “Planning My Escape” (originally premiered via OUT), followed by Holopaw’s restless “Through ‘Til the Morning,” which somehow transitions from an electronic chin-stroker to a tribal chant (via Stereogum).”

Please “like” and share the feature and, most importantly, purchase a copy. It supports a great cause
