Minutes Of Sleep was written in the aftermath, which he admits was more turbulent and upsetting than his father's death. A stirring and complex record threaded with uncertainty, Minutes Of Sleep shows that Harris is not one to wear his heart on his sleeve. Taking in his varied set of influences, it's a record that brilliantly refigures house music as a deeply personal form of inward expression. Minutes Of Sleep isn't the wrenching epitaph you might expect from its backstory-it's more of an attempt to keep calm in a fierce storm of emotions. That warm and distinctly human sound palette matches the album's life-cycle sequencing. Minutes Of Sleep drowsily brings itself to life in its opening run, then peaks in the middle before settling back down to a jazzy murmur with crestfallen moments like "Blues News" and "New Rain"-ruminative songs that feel dejected and hopeful at the same time.

Artist: Francis Harris. Album: Minutes of Sleep.

On Minutes of Sleep, Scissor and Thread label founder Francis Harris continues to grapple with the subjects of memory, loss and profound grief that suffused his critically acclaimed debut Leland (2012), an album length requiem composed for his father. Writing this time in tribute to his mother who sadly passed the following year, Harris revisits deeply personal territory on Minutes of Sleep with newfound perspective, heightened confidence and a markedly refined approach, yielding a noticeably matured and eloquent statement which transcends sorrowful brooding and rumination.

Looking into the background and life of Francis Harris, it’s quite surprising how his music turned out. After all, you wouldn’t really expect a hardcore punk rocker from Vegas to wind up as a DJ for the majority of his career. Yet, somehow, he too managed to fall in love with electronic music, as so many others had before him. And although it may be just dance music to him, it does give off a very thoughtful and intelligent vibe. Just two years ago, in 2012, he released his debut album, Leland to wide critical praise. With his second full-length album, entitled Minutes of Sleep, Harris delves yet again into the crevices of downtempo house music, and pulls out a worthy successor to his other works. At eleven tracks and over an hour long, Minutes of Sleep isn’t exactly casual listening material.

Trash Obsession
Francis mentioned in a comment on Instagram that there "may be plans" to repress his solo records.
ow my! that would be very much appreciated yes! x
no sellers? anyone has an idea how could i get this piece?
Would be willing to purchase a copy of this if anyone has it.
anyone selling this in europe at a reasonable price please contact me!
Retail copies still available @ JUNO
The Terre Taemlitz Remix is a vinyl edit btw -
Did they edit out that awful harsh beep noise? I want to buy this album but that element literally hurts my ears.
Big disappointment with the vinyl release. It omits one track, and cuts over five minutes from the Sprinkles remix?? Almost bought the vinyl, but no way I'm going to support a label that punishes people who buy vinyl.
The original was at a length that could not fit on the vinyl album without sacrificing the sound . Also , some of the original frequencies in the full song were in a range that technically , were better meant to be heard digitally as they were cut when cutting the final record to vinyl . The edit was mutually agreed upon by myself and Terre .
Is there a Vinyl Release for "new rain" as well or is it just out on the MP3- Release??
My copy has 3 tracks on the D side and the last track is only about 9 minutes long.
that's right. i believe you're looking at the CD release... check the 2XLP release page!
