More than 5,000 miles separates the members of Hollow Branches, they have only been in the same room a handful of times, each is in several other bands, and none of this is likely to change.
In spite of these obstacles, Hollow Branches has managed to record two EPs in 2009 alone. With a sound equal parts ambient, rock and trip hop, “Words are Fire” received a digital release in February and was downloaded no less than 500 times. Since that time, five new tracks have been written for their second EP, “Anchored in Sleep.” Thematically inspired by dreams, insomnia, nostalgia and morning, “Anchored in Sleep” finds Hollow Branches expanding their sound with elements of progressive and post rock, as well as glitch.

Hello, I came across your blogspot page "Post-Engineering" recently and I enjoy what you are doing. I am in a band called SIGMOID ARGONAUT, and we just recorded an EP this last september. We have yet to have the EP pressed but we want to get it out there regardless. I think we would fit in with the music that is on your site. If you are willing, can you give our music a listen and if you enjoy what you hear possibly review and post the download link? Just trying to get our stuff out there. Sorry for posting this as a comment, just couldnt figure out how to email you. Let us know what you think. Thanks again. - Ricky
