New York City- Now added to the "Bhillboards Artshow" event this upcoming Saturday, September 11th, is Ghastly City Sleep... 

GHASTLY CITY SLEEP is one of those bands where the timeless adage "writing about music is like dancing about architecture" comes to mind, it's fundamentally pointless, especially when it comes to a band like this. Reams of paper could be written up and they still wouldn't encapsulate the dense, lush, and often subtle textures that comprise this Brooklyn quartet's true sound. A precursory scan of Google results might produce comparisons to MOGWAI or a "heavier" RADIOHEAD, as if it were easy to pin down those bands in the first place… Fields of moody darkness blanket hauntingly in pulsing waves to create a universe for their pinpoint moments of boiling bright starlight  to shine blindingly across... highs and lows of the human emotions  will be stirred in you for sure. 
Ghastly City Sleep will be playing a more experimental set as a 3-piece for Bobby Hill's "BHILLBOARDS ARTSHOW"... It will be a new moment for them as well. They start a 6-week full US tour Sept. 27th in Brooklyn at Death By Audio in support of their new full-length album MOONDRIFTS.
Moondrifts is the second album from the band and their first output for Magic Bullet. Moondrifts is an entire album of unclassifiable music that pushes everything forward whilst simultaneously feeling like an old friend. Their debut E.P. Ghastly City Sleep was released on Robotic Empire.
On September 11th, in Soho NYC, a new era in art begins as Bobby Hill's "Bhillboards Artshow" takes over a 5000 sq. ft space that once housed Andy Warhol's studio. DOORS OPEN AT 7PM!!! The show is set in the 2nd floor of a townhouse style building above the old site of Grace Jones' main floor restaurant. The first 250 guests to arrive at the show will receive a free NYC 9-11 inspired "Bobby Hill Multiple Original Art Print." On display will be OVER 200 original works of art on canvas, paper and wood. Also to be revealed at the show is "MICA", a 36 ft long painting composed of eight canvases put together.
