Feeling The Sludge River Mouth
I actually don't know where I picked up Hot Singles, the 7" from Brooklyn punks Sleepies, but its a short burst of Superchunk-like riffs but with a darker bent. No heightened sugar vocals either - Thomas Seely is all about straining that vocal chord of his til it threatens to drop out. Irreverent, ballsy pop punk is never a gift horse to look in the mouth, so I will hold Sleepies to my chest and pour a pint over its head in familial triumph.
Sleepies - Sludge River Mouth
Sleepies also have a self titled LP that came out last year - its well worth hunting down. Expect something special from these guys in the upcoming months...
