Perhaps best known as the pioneering guitarist behind the legendary groups Cap’n
Jazz and Owls, Victor Villarreal is one of the most inventive guitarists of modern
indie-rock. His unique guitar style includes elements of classical, spanish, indie and
even metal. Now on the heels of his reunion with Owls (Polyvinyl), Victor is back with
his new solo long player, “Sleep Talk”.
“Sleep Talk” is Villarreal’s second proper solo effort, and his first to enlist
bassist (and early Joan of Arc member) Erik Bocek. Utilizing a “one man band” style of
performance, the majority of “Sleep Talk” was recorded live in the studio, with Victor
simultaneously performing guitar, percussion and vocals. Hinged on the tumbling
rhythms of Villarreal’s other-worldly guitar style, the tracks on “Sleep Talk” are diverse
and moody, and will tickle your brain into a meditative stasis.
