Sleeping Bag release sophomore LP, Women of Your Life, today on Joyful Noise Recordings

Back in August 2011 I wrote a short piece about the debut album release shows of Bloomington, Indiana’s, Sleeping Bag. Now, nine months later, I have the pleasure to write about the indie-pop trio’s incredible follow-up and sophomore effort, Women of Your Life.

Not a Chicago release, but seeing as how Indiana doesn’t have its own Vinyl District representative, we at TVD-CHI have are more than happy to step up and represent our neighbors to the East.

While more complex tracks and deeper lyrics may show a maturation since their 2011 debut, you’ll find yourself right at home within the consistently catchy pop hooks of Women of Your Life. Take a look at the official “Still Life” video above, and listen to the album’s melodic, whistle-fueled closer, “Walk Home”, below.

The record, released today through Joyful Noise Recordings, is available in a limited first run of 300 hand-numbered copies pressed to “double mint” green vinyl and packaged in beautiful silk-screened jackets. You can order a copy online right now and get an instant mp3 download for just $14.
