ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“This Minnesota quartet is as rare and poetic as a four-leaf clover... nothing but praise for this album.”
Marcie Guekens - Rootstime

“Heartfelt, beautiful, and austere... acoustic Americana for the new millenium.”
Adam Levy (Honeydogs)

“This album strikes a rare balance
between thinking and feeling.”
Kevin Bowe (grammy winner, guitarist for Paul Westerberg of the Replacements) -

The Sleeper Pins began as a duo in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Tyson Allison (vocals, guitar, lyrics) and Justin DeLeon (drums, percussion) wanted an outlet for some quiet, acoustic-based songs that lean on simplicity, atmosphere, and lyrics filled with introspection and imagery. Their debut album, titled "The Sleeper Pins," was recorded at Angel Beach Studios in Minneapolis and Three Fish Studios in Mankato, MN and released by the independent label Emperor Penguin Records. Many shows followed, and after some downtime and dabbling in other local bands, The Sleeper Pins resurfaced with new member and McKnight Music Fellowship recipient Aaron Kerr adding his unique style of cello playing to the group. They began performing live again as part of the successful Emperor Penguin Acoustic Showcase in Minneapolis/St. Paul. The group was further rounded out by fourth member Steve Nord, a multi-instrumentalist adding piano, bass, and guitar to the mix. With a challenging new batch of songs coupled with their more powerful full-on sound, The Sleeper Pins began recording sessions at Clear Stream Audio in Mendota Heights, MN and I.P.R. Studios in Minneapolis, MN. Their follow up album, also released on Emperor Penguin Records, was titled "Keep It Coming Like A Miracle," and proved to be a substantial step forward in sound, depth, and musicianship thanks to tasteful production by Midwest Matadors and visionary mixing by local Minneapolis whiz kid Joe Johnson. Final mastering touches were put on the album by Pete Lymon (Queens of the Stone Age/Beck/The Circle Jerks) at Infrasonic Sound in Los Angeles, CA.

Recently, The Sleeper Pins have spread their wings by doing some regional touring while the plans are made for their forthcoming album, which will be a rock album titled "Slow Boat to China." This album will include new member and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Crandall and new lead guitarist Brett Hansen. In the meantime, the members of The Sleeper Pins moonlight in other musical endeavors; most notably Swallows, Dissonant Creatures, Heavy Pedal Cello, and Cats Vs. Snakes.

Sleeper Pins amaze again.
Definitely pickup this CD. The sound quality is amazing and they wrap beautiful, thought provoking lyrics over interesting, crisp beats.

Check out this Minneapolis group so you can say, "I knew them before they got big..."
