Ball Pit Witch's comely ode to technology's addictions on "Putting Off Sleep"

Putting Off Sleep by Ball Pit Witch from Cardiff (UK) is a sultry stripped bare slow dance of a song with a stand out vocal performance. From the trippingly wrought cool stair stepping melodies that would normally evoke odes to a flesh and blood infatuation or love Putting Off Sleep instead waxes romantically over the Internet's (and all forms of media's) regular cascading come on's that keep us sleepily up at night. The opiates of the masses, right? 

In the end Putting Off Sleep still manages to coyly and beautifully put us in a love forlorn headspace just by BPW's evocative and purely sweet voice. He, after all, creates his beautiful creations in his bedroom and he does it so well.
