Star Wars Actor Oscar Isaac Really Loves SLEEP's Dopesmoker

Now if we could just get the Weedians in Star Wars...

Actor Oscar Issac, who you might know as Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, recently sat down with NME to talk about the music he likes. Issac cites artists like The Cure and Gotye in the one-pager, and surprisingly says Sleep's 2003 doom masterpiece Dopesmoker is the album that "takes him to the dark side."

"This stoner metal album is actually just one epic, grinding track. I’ll listen to this when I really just want to wallow, man. I call it ‘sludge metal’ or ‘metal meets Gregorian chants.’ It’s real head music, if you know what I mean.'"

Sleep is also surprised by Issac's choice, which I'm sure must have been a welcome bit of free publicity.
