Blackest Ever Black presents Sleep Heavy, the debut album of broken-hearted, downtempo R&B/street-soul and supremely atmospheric, introspective electronics from Jabu: a trio comprised of vocalist/lyricists Alex Rendall and Jasmine Butt, and producer Amos Childs. The group was born out of Bristol’s Young Echo collective: an ecosystem unto itself which has birthed and nurtured a number of other notable soundsystem-rooted projects and artists to date including Kahn & Neek, Sam Kidel, Ishan Sound, Ossia, Asda, chester giles (the title Sleep Heavy comes from a giles poem) and Killing Sound.

On Jabu's Sleep Heavy, these opposites have a way of getting confused. Wounds" opens with singer Alex Rendall in the grip of infatuation: "Can't say I love her, it's too vague, She storms through my mind on a rampage. -and, framed by sad chords, the song starts to seem like an elegy. The confusion is there in the album title, too. Is it referring to post-coital sleep, or the final sleep of death? Jabu's inky music hints at both states. It's soundsystem pop risen shambling. But the album's best tracks are full of life. Some past Jabu records have been spoken-word-Rendall always considered it hip-hop-but here he sings in a tense blue-eyed tenor that matches the music's discomfort. And a few tweaks to Childs' minimalist beats can give them a poppy verse-chorus sweep. In bittersweet opener "Let Me Know," a halting bassline and harmonies from second singer Jasmine Butt do the trick.

Ok, so this isn't a review but does anyone know if any of the physical versions come with a lyric sheet or print out? Really want to know the lyrics to 'Get To You' and 'Let Me Know'.

I would love the lyrics for the whole album as well. Beautiful stuff.

I bought mine from Rough Trade online, the vinyl just comes with a generic white paper sleeve and a download code.
