Date added: 06/28/2011 Sleeping Bag signs with Joyful Noise!New album now available for pre-order on LP, CD, & Sleeping Bag.
We at Joyful Noise are very happy to be working with Bloomington, Indiana-based indie trio Sleeping Bag!
The music of Sleeping Bag is an addictive amalgamation of simple melodies, deadpan delivery, jaunts of balls-out rocking, and minimalist tact. These are songs that, for as streamlined and basic as they seem, gain value with each repeated listen. Simplicity is their asset, and my god they use it well.
Sleeping Bag began as Dave Segedy's solo drum project (then called "Whoa Bro Awesome"). Segedy started flirting with melody and was joined by Lewis Rogers on guitar and David Woodruff (from label-mates The Delicious) on bass, two front-men singers in their own right. Dave Segedy remains the group's songwriter and primary vocalist. Yes, the drummer writes and sings all the songs, imagine that!
The band's self-titled debut album is released August 9th on CD, blue vinyl, black vinyl, and sleeping bag. Yes, we are releasing the album in the format of a sleeping bag - screen-printed by the band, and packaged with a digital download code.
