War Against Sleep
Invitation to the Feast (Fire Records)
By: Alex Steininger
Played with the intimacy and tenderness of just a guy and a guitar, but delivered with semi-lush exuberance, War Against Sleep's latest, Invitation to the Feast, lives up to its folk base, but exceeds it far and wide with its quirky, warm pop front. This is folk-gone-indie, sparkling with melodies and carried with honest lyrics, ensuring that the duration of your listen will be plentiful. Whether they're experimenting with guitar noise, serenading you with pianos, or speaking to your soul with a relaxed, tired voice, War Against Sleep has you sitting on the edge of your seat as you absorb all of the timeless sounds found here. I'll give it an A-.
