One would assume these are students of the Pernice Brothers, Belle and Sebastian and the melancholia of Warren Zevon. Perfect for wintry fireplace listening minus the manners. Sleepers Wake is low on guilty pleasure but high on comfort and warmth. There are occasional quirky harmony and instrumental touches, but “Sleepers Wake” emits politeness, dismisses cynics and is ultimately rather unique. (Anyway Records) –Hernan Tasies
