Sleeping Bag's third record, 'Deep Sleep', is angrier and more ferocious than their past two, frontman and drummer Dave Segedy making his indie pop louder and prouder. Recommended for fans of bedroom pop and shoegaze alike, taking the fuzz of My Bloody Valentine and the careless punk rock of Weezer as primary influences.

There’s been quite a lot of disgustingly fuzzy pop-metal type records coming out this week actually, what with that excellent bit of dreamy sludge from Hollow Sunshine and some lighthearted prog-doom from Pallbearer, not to mention the amazing bit of fuzz-psych-gaze from Wand that I listened to just a couple of hours ago.
Well it’s an expensive week for those who like a blend of doomy sludge and warm dreampop melodies as here’s yet another uplifting distorto-rock gem, this time from the oddly-named Sleeping Bag, and it would appear that these fuzzy slacker rockers have named the opening track of this album in tribute to me, ‘Riff Randall’. How nice of them. This lot are playing an upbeat and nerdy take on indie rock that seems to draw equal inspiration from the first two Weezer albums and the noisy triumph of bands like Floor and My Bloody Valentine. As a result ‘Deep Sleep’ strikes a great balance between shameless pop hooks and nasty, heavy guitar tones, delivered in a nonchalant and affable way. Totally likeable fuzzpop business.
