Vancouver Sleep Clinic - Flaws

The Australian man (or should I say boy? If there's a statch charge possibility I will def say boy) behind Vancouver Sleep Clinic is 17 years old. Wrap your mind around that. Then understand that he makes music just as melancholy and emotionally draining as Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver. Yet, while there are a ton of similarities vocally, Tim Bettinson's music is less stripped back. He utilizes atmospheric synths, pinao, and backing snaps. And possibly even some xylophone. It's beautiful and glacial (perhaps like his moniker!? I've never been). And dare I say it, much catchier than anything Sigur Ros or Bon Iver releases. Note however, this is a relative term. Do not expect young Tim to blow up the Top 40 alongside Flo Rida anytime soon.
