If the thought of a sleeping bag is supposed to evoke feelings of warmth, comfort and nostalgia, then this 3-piece indie rock outfit from Indiana certainly nailed it when it came time to pick a band name. Introducing, Sleeping Bag.
Based out of Bloomington Indiana, the trio has just released their self-titled debut album from Joyful Noise Recordings. Packed with catchy-as-hell melodies, and a minimalist delivery, the album is something you’ll definitely want to hear more than once.
Check out the album’s lead track and first single “Slime” below.

Sleeping Bag is now available through Joyful Noise Recordings online store as a CD, 12” Vinyl (your choice of blue or black), and sleeping bag. Yes, you read that right.
Sleeping Bag created an awesome limited edition sleeping bag, hand-screened by the band, that includes a digital copy of the album. How cool is that? Check it out below.
