Debut self-titled EP from Boston riot doom rockers Sleep Crimes.
"The band’s title track, “Sleep Crimes,” sounds like heavy, female-fronted, gothic metal. Three-and-a-half minutes in the track morphs into the rockabilly-goth nonsensical, “Even Cows Sing the Moos.” All vestiges of seriousness are thrown from the window with “I Pledge My Love (to Satan),” which is a Grease meets Little Shop of Horrors ’50s-style show tune which makes me smile wider with every listen. The too-short EP ends with “Psychic Cockroach” which, on one hand sounds like Safari-era Breeders, while on the other hand sounds like the vintage British punk of Vice Squad. The four songs that comprise this EP may, at first glance, sound all over the map, but I can assure you that there is a common thread of awesomeness that makes Sleep Crimes’ EP a worthwhile listen."
