Ok, new featurelette from our ubiquitous New Music Editor, Lisa Thomas. A Song of the Day, featuring day appropriate video clips from the amazing repertoire of the dazzling Ms. Thomas.
Sleeping Bag, from Bloomington Indiana will keep you warm through the lo-fi winter months.
Headed by Dave Segedy, Sleeping Bag posted Slime as a free download via Bandcamp back in 2011
Sleeping Bag has a raw and edgy sound reminiscent of Starflyer‘s Silver album in the early `90s:
Dave Segedy is commonly seen backing regional bands on drums, and has been since his run with Arrah and the Ferns.
Sleeping Bag has been a new experience for him as this is the first time he has stepped from behind the drum kit. Outside of music, Dave Segedy is an art student at Indiana University.
“Unaccustomed to melodic instruments, he relied on pop instinct, simply writing and recording what he wanted to listen to. He focused on efficiency and the interaction of the songs.”
In November of 2010, Sleeping Bag released a split EP with Vollmar. Segedy tracked the songs with Mike Dixon, who also backed him up on pedal steel.
Love and Good Things,
New Music Editor
