Sleepies - 'Weird Wild World' Album PremiereBy Noisey Staff
We at Noisey try not to play favorites, but we can't help ourselves this time. Brooklyn-based band Sleepies are one of the best groups out there right now, and we have a feeling that after you listen to just a couple of their tracks, they'll become a favorite of yours too. Sleepies have just what we're looking for right now—summer's winding down and we want some freak punk tracks to thrash around to. Lucky for us (and you!), we have the entirety of Sleepies' new album, World Wide Weird, released by GODMODE, streaming right below:
16oh will be releasing the vinyl on August 21st, so keep your eyes open for that.
