For an album of guitar pop (a notoriously repetitive genre) to be fifty minutes long and not have bored all the listeners by the end, its gotta be pretty stinkin good. And Sleepy Suburbia is that good. -Stephen Carradini, Independant Clauses

Available for purchase online at www.nokarma.com.

"Milwaukee isn't "suburbia," but these four Wisconsin natives from beer-town have, like this writer in 1980, forsaken satellite inertia for more exciting urban life/sounds. Though they get around (see the country-folk tune, "Summer Car Vacation," on mandolin and accordion!), what they do best is a flying, seat of pants, hard pop-rock in the vein of the "Supers," Superdrag, Superchunk, Super Furry Animals, Super Deluxe, Super Friendz, and Supergrass (if not Supersuckers), with scraps of Nada Surf, Sloan, Thrush Hermit, and Visqueen. As seen on the revealingly-titled "My What a Lovely Rocket Ship," and kick-ass "I Was a Wedding DJ" and "What I Did on My Vacation," these guys have the vitality and sincerity of The Descendents, the big-drums of Hootenanny Replacements, the hooks and heroic guitars of The Skids (think "Sweet Suburbia"), and the new wave lilt of Nick Lowe. Bravo!!!! "
-Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
