Sleepies are a multifaceted Brooklyn trio whose raucous punk quirk and erratic noise rock pulse make this squad’s 13-track eponymous excursion an intriguingly tumultuous affair to get acquainted with. Boasting jagged guitars and chaotic vocals that never miss the chance for a gang chorus moment while terse rhythmic patterns hold everything from running off the rails with the eerie smoothness of Violent Femmes, this band’s road worn and battle-torn sound stealthily apes swagger from the Sex Pistols, draws vitriol from Nirvana, and gets moody like The Replacements to create an efficient and effective 21st century strand of apocalyptic rock straight from the garage to your eardrums.
