Praise for the Midwest’s Sleeper Hit Band, Sleeper Car

“Chicago’s Sleeper Car bends alt-country expectations on its second album, Love & Anxiety. The fiddles and pedal steel add twang, but the band’s real forte is its commitment to a folk-rock tradition that stretches all the way back to the ’60s. All five guys, plant roots in a songbook that nods to Dylan, the Byrds, and, by extension, Woody Guthrie. That’s not to say they sound anything at all like any of them, but Sleeper Car’s Americana aesthetic paints a timeless portrait of wide-open spaces and endless highways.” – Cleveland Scene

“On Love & Anxiety, Sleeper Car present another classic collection of winsome reflections and pensive sentiments swathed in gently swaying, western-touched country pop. Their lavish, lush arrangements are fully intact on “Caliber Eyes” and “Lay It Down,” as a bristling harmonica kicks against keening strings and tender acoustic guitar. “Anti Climactic Girl” has endless charm as a weeping violin swells through a stately rhythm and evocative reminiscence.” – Illinois Entertainer
