Dreamboats may seem an unlikely name for an album that focuses on the introspective ramblings of men who spend a lot of time justifying the purchase of expensive samurai swords and eating dog food as a potato chip substitute. But these are the major conflicts considered by this joint effort between Sleeping Bag and Rozwell Kid. Dreamboats plumbs a serious emotional depth that belies its outwardly silly surface. The album balances harmonic hooks with depression; anxiety reveling in alt-rock glory. “Every now and then, I get the urge to decimate something that I tell myself I can’t live without.” Cue guitar solo.

At their fun live shows, this upstate NY pop-punk duo is extremely energetic and super enthusiastic - lots of jumping and kicking by singer/guitarist Alex Luciano - she must have a spring for a spine. But more importantly, the songs are catchy. They also released a 7" in 2015 and a full-length coming out in 2017, Live video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za979jCnlE4 Art Fin
