Sleepy Limbs – “S/T”
Check out this week’s delicious vinyl treats on the RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!
SLEEPY LIMBS was started in late 2016 simply as an outlet for three friends to continue playing music together, and quickly grew into much more. All three members of Sleepy Limbs, Ben Roth, Kory Gable and Joe Fuscia were previously members of You, Me, and Everyone We Know. They were no explicit intentions for SLEEPY LIMBS at its formation besides continuing to make music together. Nearly a year later the band has garnered an impressive following through PA and the Northeast, and will be touring relentlessly for the foreseeable future. Hit up KNOW HOPE RECORDS and if you’re lucky they’ll still have one of the ‘Ultra Clear’ with ‘Black’ smoke records left!

More Country Gospel diatribes and Hellfired Hillbilly laments originally waxed on microscopic labels and distributed in minuscule amounts. These troubled but largely forgotten Hayseed troubadours sing of damnation and infernal choices, tormented sinners, Devil trains, Luciferian trysts, evil dope schemes and fallow final dreams. Years in the making – ‘HILLBILLIES IN HELL’ (VOLUME FOUR) presents a further 16 timeless testaments of sin, tribulation, cold graves and warm temptations. An unholy stash of subterranean 45s, some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your prurient listening pleasure….

This is SECRET SHINE sequenced for maximum power. You get the “Greater Than God” EP, two singles, “Ephemeral” and “Loveblind”, complete with b-sides. All of it originally released on Sarah Records, the place where testosterone and rock cliches went to die. And if those cliches still exist today, the fault lies in the world for refusing to change.
