Walk Home
  • Walk Home
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Women of Your Life

In an interesting move, Bloomy, Indiana guitar pop dudes Sleeping Bag has premiered the closer from their ten-track forthcoming LP as the first “single” of sorts. But what an album closer it is! If these guys had an anthem in them, “Walk Home” is it—and just so fitting that it’s opens with whistling. I’ll typically be first to call bullshit on whistling, but it really works. Less of a tremendous, glittering anthem and more of an ode to long, rural roads and one too many thoughts. Bring on the major leagues.

Their sophmore LP ‘Women of Your Life’ will be out November 27 on Joyful Noise Recordings! The vinyl version will be limited to just 300 hand-numbered copies on “double mint” green vinyl, packaged in silk-screened jackets! Don’t Sleep(ing Bag)!

Child Bite - Monomania (Slime Green #407/500)


I am doing things a bit backwards, last week I featured Child Bite’s 2nd EP which was in accordance with this beautiful slime green 10" entitled Monomania. Ive already talked about this band but I just wanted to give you guys an in depth look into the packaging. both Vision Crimes and Monomania are essentially the same when it comes to how the record is packaged. Aside from the actual screen printed artwork these are both equally beautiful, and I highly suggest picking both of these up from joyful noise.
