Sleep Party People’s Brian Batz dives into the darker edges of orchestral pop on new album Heap of Ashes.
Influenced by primarily Bulgarian choral music, the worn-out sound of old tape, and 21st century experimental composition, the music of Sleep Party People exposes every facet, every moment, and every wound, finding beauty even when the last glow of hope looks like it’s ready to fade into the ashes.

Joyful Noise is not your standard record label... We are artistic facilitators for a wide variety of adventurous musicians.
We aren't focused on any particular genre, nor are we particularly focused on popularity. We value art over commerce,
and we exist to empower our artists to create the most meaningful work possible.
Since our humble beginning in 2003, Joyful Noise has grown a diverse roster of bands including: Kishi Bashi, Deerhoof, WHY?,
Tropical Fuck Storm, Son Lux, Joan of Arc, El Ten Eleven, Swamp Dogg, Ohmme, The Ophelias, Dale Crover, SUUNS, Sleep Party People,
Magic Sword, The Low Anthem, No Joy, Danielson, Oneida, Rob Crow, Sound of Ceres, Lou Barlow, and many others.
We have also released a slew of limited specialty releases on inventive formats (such as multi-spindle-holed vinyl, cassette box sets,
hybrid CD-records, a cymbal-record, etc.), and have created numerous record series such as
our VIP Editions
and White Label Series.
We like to push the boundaries of traditional formats, and make our physical releases as artful as the music they contain.
Joyful Noise is run by a small group of just 10 people who strive to create one of the most artist-friendly labels on the planet,
both in terms of artistic freedom and financial transparency. We also believe in social justice, and often use our label platform
to organize benefit releases for
struggling or marginalized communities around the world. We even started a "church" to help struggling musicians.
Our home base is in the great city of Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
