Sleepy Study falls somewhere between the new crop of Kinsella inspired bands and perhaps some of the more conventional late 90's fare like The Jazz June or The Promise Ring.
The rough edges of the production actually sort of works in presenting the songs in a raw and uncompromising manner. Which, coincidentally, makes this all the more 90's sounding.
As the songs move on I even get a little bit of a early 90's alternative rock feel from some of these songs (ala the Lemonheads, Teenage Fanclub or Weezer). Perhaps this is due to the slightly off key vocals that add that charming vibe atop of the distorted guitar and bass.
