“A lot of music I listen to was either recorded in the ’80s or ’90s, or it sounds like it was made back then. If you share similar tastes, you may dig The Sleepwalkers. – USA TODAY
“The Sleepwalkers’ new single ‘My Best Was Never Good Enough’ is a zippy little rocker with shades of Big Star and The Replacements. There are a lot of bands working in this lane, both locally and nationally, but few pulling it off with such sweetness and sincerity.” – SHEPHERD EXPRESS
“In contemporary terms the music of theses four Green Bay natives could pass for a middle brother between Deer Tick and Dawes.” – GREEN BAY PRESS GAZETTE
The Sleepwalkers have been quietly banging around in the attic for the better part of five years in Wisconsin’s Fox Valley region. Writing, rewriting, absorbing, touring and, every now and then, releasing a record.
From this, comes Lost My Mind In Stereo, the second full-length album from The Sleepwalkers (formerly Ian Olvera & The Sleepwalkers). Building on the framework of their 2010 release The Reckless Kind, the band hits full force with a lot of drums, a lot of guitars, and a lot of attitude on Lost My Mind In Stereo. A variety of keyboards augment the arrangements and help accentuate each hook, leaving you with a roadmap back to such influences as The Band, Sam Cooke and The Replacements.
After the release of The Reckless Kind, The Sleepwalkers spent the better part of 2010-2012 supporting the record on the road locally, regionally and nationally. The band logged countless local shows, as well as several self-booked regional and national tours, including shows with White Rabbits, Ha Ha Tonka, The Henry Clay People, Dan Vapid & The Cheats, Paul Collins Beat, Prima Donna, The Melismatics, The Figgs, Miles Nielsen and more.
The Sleepwalkers’ Lost My Mind In Stereo will be available on CD & digital formats on April 8th via IJGFM Records.
