Pretty much the ultimate stoner-metal band, California's Sleep attained near-legendary status in the ’90s on the strength of its ultra-extended slo-mo epics. The trio splintered into the highly revered outfits High on Fire and Om but has regrouped sporadically in recent years, with 2014 seeing the release of a new tranced-out single "The Clarity," a typically tranced-out churner, gives a sense of where these weedy travelers are headed. For this free House of Vans gig, the band teams up with Battles, whose greatest achievement has been taking the listener-friendly experimentalism of ’90s post-rock (Tortoise, etc.) and grafting on a dance-floor-commanding pulse.
